LONDON (Reuters) ̵

1; UK Prime Minister Theresa May has warned lawmakers that failure to return to her plans to leave The European Union would be catastrophic for Britain, on a basis for support two days before a vote in Parliament which it is expected to lose.

Legislators will vote for Corn Brexit deal Tuesday after she made plans for the vote in December when it became clear that not enough legislators from their own party or others would reclaim the agreement she agreed with Brussels.

May look a little closer to securing the support she needs, but writing in the Sunday Express, she said that lawmakers should not let down the people who voted for Brexit.

"To do so would be a disastrous and unforgivable breach of confidence in our democracy," May said.

"So my message to Parliament this weekend is simple: it's time to forget about the games and do what is right for our country."

On Friday, her foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said it would not happen if Brexit's all-out deal was defeated

Britain, the world's fifth largest economy, is scheduled to end the European Union on March 29.

The Sunday Times reported that the rebel laws planned to break control of the legislative agenda from May next week in order to repeal or delay Brexit, referring to a higher government source.
