British lawmakers launch new group to try to secure Brexit deal

LONDON: Several British lawmakers launched a new group on Tuesday to bolster efforts to secure a deal to leave the European Union, hoping to persuade parliament finally to pass an agreement based on one it rejected three times.
The group of Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat lawmakers, called “MPs (members of parliament) for a deal”, said it would rally support for a deal based on one former leader Theresa May had worked on with the opposition Labour Party.
Caroline Flint, a Labour lawmaker who previously voted in favour of May’s deal, said the group would use “the hours, the days, the weeks left” before the Brexit deadline of Oct 31 to show the “sizeable voice” in parliament for a deal. “We are all in support of getting a deal and leaving in an orderly way,” she told a news conference, adding there were about 50 Labour lawmakers who wanted a deal.
