Britain will only leave the European Union without a deal on March 29 with the explicit consent of parliament, British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday.

May promised lawmakers that if they do not approve a revised Brexit deal by March 12, she will give them a vote on whether to leave without a deal. If they reject that, parliament will vote on March 14 on whether to seek a “short, limited extension” to the Article 50 negotiating period, reports Reuters.

 “The United Kingdom will only leave without a deal on 29 March if there is explicit consent in the House (of Commons) for that outcome,” May told parliament.
