LONDON, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Britain’s work and pensions minister Amber Rudd said Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was the best option and the only plan available for leaving the European Union, although she admitted a plan B might be needed.
Members of parliament look set to vote down May’s deal on Tuesday, a move which risks hurtling the world’s fifth-largest economy into even deeper uncertainty and leaving open a number of possible outcomes including a disorderly Brexit.
“The best deal we have is the one the Prime Minister’s put forward,” Rudd told BBC radio on Saturday. “There is only one plan.”
