No plans seen to bring Brexit deal back to parliament -junior minister

LONDON, Jan 9 (Reuters) - British junior Brexit minister Chris Heaton-Harris said on Wednesday he had not seen any plans to suggest Prime Minister Theresa May would ask parliament to vote again on her Brexit deal if it is rejected next week.

May postponed a planned vote on the deal in December in order to seek further reassurances from the European Union, but it still looks set to be rejected and some British media have reported that she would then ask parliament to vote again, possibly several times.

Asked during a committee hearing how many times the deal would be brought back to the House if it was voted down, Heaton-Harris said: “I have not seen any plans that suggest it would be brought back to the House.” (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan; editing by Stephen Addison)
