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.
