British vote on Brexit deal will be ‘as soon as possible in January’

British MPs will not be asked to vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal before the end of this year, Downing Street has said.

A Number 10 spokeswoman told reporters: “The ‘meaningful vote’ will not be brought to Parliament before Christmas.”

The spokeswoman said the vote – which was scheduled for Tuesday this week but postponed by the British Prime Minister after she accepted she would lose heavily – will come “as soon as possible in January”. The Government has committed to holding it before January 21.
