UK PM May: Brexit could be lost if exit deal voted down

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION British Prime Minister Theresa May said that Brexit could be lost if lawmakers reject the exit deal she has negotiated with the European Union at a vote in parliament later on Tuesday (March 12).

She told parliament, "The danger for those of us who want to deliver, to have faith in the British public and deliver on their vote for Brexit, is that if this vote is not passed tonight, if this deal is not passed, then Brexit could be lost." The vote on May's deal is schedule for 1900GMT.
