May: Not enough support yet to hold a third Brexit vote

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Prime Minister Theresa May said there was not yet enough support for her to put her Brexit deal to a vote in parliament for a third time, but she would continue with talks with lawmakers to try to get their backing.

"I continue to believe that the right path forward is for the United Kingdom to leave the EU as soon as possible with a deal, now on May 22," she told parliament on Monday (March 25).

"But it is with great regret that I have had to conclude that as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the House (of Commons) to bring back the deal for a third meaningful vote." May had to delay Britain's original March 29 departure date because of the deadlock in London.

Now, the country will leave the EU on May 22 if May's deal is approved by parliament this week.

If not, Britain will have until April 12 to offer a new plan or decide to leave without a treaty.

To get the deal passed, she must win over at least 75 MPs - dozens of rebels in her Conservative Party, some opposition Labour Party MPs and the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up her minority government.

The EU believes a no-deal Brexit is increasingly likely, EU officials said.
