May ‘sure’ lawmakers will want to deliver Brexit in June vote May 16, 2019 0 840 12345 ReutersLONDONBritish Prime Minister Theresa May said she was confident lawmakers would want to deliver Brexit when legislation to secure Britain’s departure from the European Union comes before parliament next month.“I’m sure that when MPs come to look at that and they come to vote for that, they will recognise that we have a duty in parliament to deliver on the result of the referendum and deliver Brexit,” she told reporters in Paris, where she had been meeting other leaders to discuss online extremism.May declined to answer directly when asked if she would resign if lawmakers fail to support the bill. Meanwhile, Britain’s opposition Labour Party cannot support legislation to ratify Prime Minister Theresa May’s brexit deal if it has not reached a compromise agreement with the government, a spokesman for the party said on Wednesday.The government has been in talks with Labour for weeks in an attempt to find a way forward on brexit. So far a deal has not been reached but the government has now said it plans to bring forward the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in early June.“For there to be Labour support for this bill there would need to be agreement and we haven’t got that agreement,” the spokesman said. There is an under appreciation of the risk Britain could leave the European Union without a deal later this year, brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Wednesday.“There is an under appreciation that no deal can still happen,” he told a committee of lawmakers from the House of Lords, the upper house of parliament.
