​Vote against May deal could cause Brexit Paralysis, says Foreign Secretary

The Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said Brexit might not happen at all if Theresa May's deal is voted down by Parliament on Tuesday. Mr Hunt says that if May's deal was defeated then there was a real chance of "Brexit paralysis" that could lead to Britain's planned exit being stopped.

The vote is set to take place next Tuesday, with research by BBC Politics suggesting Mrs May will lose the vote with a majority of over 200 MPs.
