UK Prime Minister Theresa May answered questions from MPs in the House of Commons in London on Wednesday, just hours before flying to Brussels for an emergency European Council on Brexit.
Asked whether or not she would consider a second referendum, May said that «my position on the second referendum, the government position has not changed.»
«The House has rejected a second referendum two times... Еще. Now when we come to a deal we will have to ensure that legislation goes through this House,» she added.
May also reiterated she is against a no-deal Brexit saying that «I still believe that the best Brexit for the UK is to be able to leave in an orderly way, to be able to leave with a deal. And I do want to ensure that that Brexit does indeed honour the result of the referendum.»
The UK is currently set to leave the EU on 12 April and, as yet, no withdrawal deal has been approved by MPs.
May is expected to ask for a short Brexit extension to June 30 at the summit in Brussels later but EU leaders are reportedly set to reject her request and to attempt to force her to accept a longer delay.
