Britain's negotiating hand will be weakened if defeated in vote - government source

LONDON, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Britain’s negotiating hand in talks to leave the European Union will be undermined if the government loses a symbolic vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s strategy on Thursday, a government source said.

“Without support from MPs (Members of Parliament), it will be harder for the government to get the changes to the backstop we know they want,” the source said. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by William James)
