UK at risk of being forced to take part in European parliamentary elections - Barclay

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

The United Kingdom's exit from the European Union was in disarray on Sunday (March 24) as Prime Minister Theresa May faced a possible plot by ministers to topple her and parliament prepared to grab control of Brexit from the government.

At one of the most important junctures for the country since World War Two, British politics was at fever pitch and, nearly three years since the 2016 referendum, it was still unclear how, when or if Brexit will ever take place.

Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said May's deal was the best option and urged people to get behind the prime minister, during an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr.

Lawmakers are due on Monday (March 25) to debate a government motion saying parliament has considered a statement made by May on March 15 which set out the government's next steps on Brexit, including the plan to seek a delay.

They are likely to propose changes, or amendments, to this motion setting out alternative ways forward on Brexit which could include a proposal to approve May's deal only if it is put to a public vote.
