May Says No-Deal Won't Occur Without Commons Vote: Brexit Update

May Says No-Deal Won't Occur Without Commons Vote: Brexit UpdateTheresa May said she doesn’t yet have enough support to put her Brexit deal to a vote in Parliament but will continue to try to convince MPs to back it. David Lidington, May’s effective deputy, tried to win MPs over by promising that the government will set aside a day this week for votes on Brexit options -- if Parliament rejects tonight the so-called Letwin-Grieve amendment (see 5:50 p.m.) which seeks to give Parliament control of the process. When asked by Oliver Letwin himself if it would match the strategy laid out in his amendment, Lidington said he couldn’t commit to the details.
