UK Official: Brexit's At Risk if Lawmakers Reject May's Deal

Brexit is at risk  of being lost altogether if lawmakers reject U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's latest deal.

That's what British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt  told the BBC  on Sunday.  May's been trying to negotiate last-minute changes with European Union leaders ahead of a parliamentary vote on the agreement this week.

The U.K. is set to leave the EU on March 29, but Parliament  still hasn't agreed  to the terms of the withdrawal.  One issue is the  Northern Ireland backstop .

It's a policy designed to  prevent a hard border  with Ireland after Brexit, but critics are concerned that it would keep the U.K. tied to the EU.

May's first Brexit proposition  was defeated  by lawmakers in a historic vote in January.

If her plan is rejected again, there'll be a vote on leaving the EU without a deal, and then potentially a vote on delaying the departure date.  That's what Hunt is wary of.

He told the BBC that some members of Parliament wanted to "kill" the deal in the hopes of snagging a delay, with the goal of ultimately holding another referendum.  Parliament is scheduled to vote for a second time on May's withdrawal deal on Tuesday.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
