UK government spokeswoman says Brexit deal vote still possible for next week
Alison Donnelly speaks to reporters
- Parliament vote on Brexit deal hinges on progress with the EU
This comes despite Leadsom putting out a schedule earlier showing that there won't be a vote to come before Christmas. Do be reminded that parliament goes into a recess period on 20 December. Despite Donnelly's comments here, the odds of a vote taking place next week is still rather slim unless May can convince European leaders to offer her the assurances she needs later today - which many still doubt will happen.
