LONDON (Reuters) - British MPs will begin voting on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal at 1900 GMT on Jan. 15, the opposition Labour Party said on Tuesday, citing a copy of the provisional schedule for the debate.

A five-day debate on the deal begins on Wednesday and is expected to end with several votes, each of which could be make-or-break for May’s hopes of getting the approval she needs from parliament in order to proceed with her Brexit plan.
