LONDON (Reuters) – The British government will only hold a third parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal this week if it believes it can win, trade minister Liam Fox said on Sunday.

“It would be difficult to justify having a vote if we knew we were gong to lose it,” he told Sky News.

May is expected to put her divorce deal with the European Union before parliament for a third time this week, after lawmakers crushed it twice before.
