Brexit deal vote on Dec 11:


Par­lia­ment’s vote on Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May’s Brexit deal will go ahead on Dec 11, her of­fice said on Thurs­day, de­spite a news­pa­per re­port min­is­ters had sought a de­lay to pre­vent a de­feat so big it might bring down the gov­ern­ment.

May has re­peat­edly said that if law­mak­ers re­ject her deal with Brussels, which would see Bri­tain exit the EU on March 29 with con­tin­ued close ties, the only al­ter­na­tives are leav­ing with­out a deal or rev­ers­ing Brexit.

The Bri­tish par­lia­ment is mid-way through a five­day de­bate on the Brexit deal, ahead of the crunch vote which will de­fine Bri­tain’s de­par­ture from the EU and could de­ter­mine May’s own fu­ture as leader. She cur­rently looks set to lose that vote.
