Government will only hold a vote on Brexit if it knows it can win, says Liam Fox

The British government will only hold a third parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal this week if it believes it can win, UK Trade Minister Liam Fox told Sky News today (March 17th). 

“It would be difficult to justify having a vote if we knew we were going to lose" he said.

May is expected to put her beleaguered Brexit deal with the European Union before the House of Commons for a third time this week, after it failed to garner sufficient support twice before. 

She is known to have been negotiating heavily with Northern Ireland's DUP, upon whose support she is largely reliant.
