LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she wanted to leave the European Union with an agreement and she would be voting against a ‘no deal’ exit later in parliament.
Lawmakers will vote on a government motion later which states that parliament rejects leaving the EU without a deal on March 29, but notes that leaving without a deal remains the legal default unless a deal is agreed.
“I want to leave the European Union with a good deal, I believe we have a good deal,” she told parliament. “I will be voting for the motion standing in my name.”
