BERLIN (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Thursday that he thought a hard, no-deal Brexit had become a bit less likely than two weeks ago.

The British parliament on Wednesday rejected leaving the European Union 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.
