UK's Hammond says lawmakers must compromise to break Brexit impasse

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION British finance minister Philip Hammond told BBC television on Thursday (March 14) that lawmakers on all sides needed to compromise in order to break the Brexit impasse.

On Wednesday (March 13), Britain's parliament rejected leaving the EU without a deal, further weakening Prime Minister Theresa May and paving the way for a vote that could delay Brexit until at least the end of June.

"Nobody is going to get their perfect Brexit out of this.

We have to have a Brexit that represents a compromise that reflects the fact that actually the nation was divided pretty much down the middle in the referendum in 2016," Hammond said.
