LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May appealed to lawmakers in parliament to prioritise the national interest when they are asked to approve whatever exit deal she is able to agree with the European Union.

“We’re working for that deal - when we come back with a deal I would hope that everybody across this whole house will put the national interest first,” May said when asked about the prospects of getting a deal approved by parliament.
