LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May is focused on ratifying a Brexit deal before May 22 so that Britain can leave on that day, her spokesman said on Wednesday.

May is holding talks with opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and others to try to find consensus over Britain’s future relationship with the European Union to win support for her divorce deal, which has been rejected by parliament three times.
