Prime Minister Theresa May will ask lawmakers to rule out Britain leaving the European Union without an agreement on Wednesday, after they overwhelmingly rejected for a second time the Brexit deal she has negotiated with the EU.


May’s motion asks parliament’s elected main house, the Commons, to reject a no-deal Brexit but notes that “leaving without a deal remains the default in UK and EU law unless this house and the EU ratify an agreement.”


If, as expected, the lawmakers agree the motion in a free vote, she has promised another vote on Thursday on extending the Brexit process, just 15 days before Britain is scheduled to leave the EU on March 29.


After a crushing defeat in the second “meaningful vote” on her Brexit deal late Tuesday, May said she remained “passionate about delivering the result of the [2016 Brexit] referendum.”


“But I equally passionately believe that the best way to do that is to leave in an orderly way with a deal and I still believe there is a majority in the house for that course of action,” she said.


“And I am conscious also of my duties as prime minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of the potential damage to the union that leaving without a deal could do when one part of our country is without devolved governance,” May added.


She was referring to the suspension of Northern Ireland’s power-sharing government for more than two years.
