LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmakers will vote on whether to approve Prime Minister Theresa May’s revised Brexit deal on March 12, the leader of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom said on Thursday.

May has been seeking changes to her deal, after it was rejected by a record majority in parliament in January.

If the deal is rejected again, Leadsom said she would make a statement at that point setting out the timetable for fulfilling May’s commitment to give parliament votes next week on whether to leave the EU without a deal on March 29 or delay Brexit.
