Not enough support for Brexit deal vote yet: MayMarch 25, 2019 21:56
Britain's PM Theresa May says she does not have enough support to win a vote on her EU withdrawal deal "as things stand".
She said she would continue trying to get MPs to back it before putting it to the Commons for a third time this week.
The PM will also order Tory MPs to vote against a bid by a group of MPs, headed by Tory Sir Oliver Letwin, to hold votes on alternatives to her plan.
The government would give MPs time to hold such votes, but Mrs May said she was "sceptical" about the process.
And she said the government would not commit to delivering the outcome of the votes but would "engage constructively" with MPs.
"The votes could lead to an outcome that is un-negotiable with the EU," she told MPs.
"No government could give a blank cheque to commit to an outcome without knowing what it is. So I cannot commit the government to delivering the outcome of any votes held by this House, but I do commit to engaging constructively with this process."
