British lawmakers instruct UK PM Theresa May to change Brexit deal; EU says 'No'

Updated : January 30, 2019 07:07 AM IST

At the same time, they rejected a proposal to give parliament a path to prevent a potentially chaotic 'no-deal' exit by making May ask Brussels for a delay if she cannot get a deal through parliament.
If the British parliament cannot find a majority for a way forward, the United Kingdom will leave the largest global trading bloc without any deal, a scenario that businesses fear will bring chaos to the world's fifth biggest economy.
