UK junior minister - I hope May's Brexit deal is approved

LONDON (Reuters) - The British government very much hopes that Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal is approved next week, a junior Brexit minister said on Monday.

“We’ve got a week. I’m very hopeful the deal will be voted through next week,” junior Brexit minister Kwasi Kwarteng told BBC radio.

“It’s an evolving situation, I think we will get to the point where we could, we will, I hope, win the vote.”

He said: “If we don’t get the deal through then it opens possibility of greater uncertainty and more chaos.”
