Inside look into House of Commons before meaningful vote on Brexit deal

LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (JANUARY 10, 2019) (INTERNATIONAL POOL) – The chambers of the House of Commons and its division lobby are prepared and ready ahead of Tuesday’s (January 15) meaningful vote on British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

May had postponed the original parliamentary vote on the agreement in December in order to seek more concessions, including further guarantees on the Ireland and Northern Ireland border.

On Wednesday (January 9) May suffered an early defeat to her Brexit plans after lawmakers voted 308-297 to demand that the government come up with a plan B within days if she loses a vote on her deal to leave the European Union.

May has so far refused to retreat from her unpopular deal, which envisages close trading ties with the EU, but without any say on policy as Britain has now, after leaving in March.
