UK PM to Lawmakers: Voting Withdrawal Deal Down Could Risk No Brexit

LONDON – British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday Brexit might not go ahead if lawmakers failed to back her withdrawal deal when it is submitted to a vote in Parliament.

May, leader of the minority Conservative Party government in the United Kingdom’s House of Commons, is due to travel to Brussels later on Wednesday for further discussions ahead of an extraordinary European Council summit on Nov. 25, where EU leaders are expected to sign off on the terms and conditions of the divorce.

“If you look at the alternative to having that deal with the EU, it will either be more uncertainty, more division or it could risk no Brexit at all,” May said when opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn asked if a no-deal Brexit scenario was firmly off the table.

May has previously said that no deal with the EU would be better than a bad deal but was now firmly defending her draft withdrawal agreement, which, following its publication last week, prompted ministerial resignations and an abortive backbench mutiny calling for a leadership challenge.

Her deal faces fierce opposition in the Commons, the UK’s lower chamber, when it is submitted to a vote.

The UK is on track to leave the EU on March 29, 2019.
