No-deal more likely if Brexit timetable vote lost - Johnson's spokesman

LONDON, Oct 22 (Reuters) - A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said any failure to pass his legislative timetable on Tuesday will increase the chance of a no-deal Brexit because the European Union may not grant an extension to Britain’s membership of the bloc.

Losing the vote will mean legislation required to leave the EU will drift on and on, the spokesman said.
