Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May made the announcement in her most significant speech yet on her government's objectives from its Brexit negotiations with the EU.
British Prime Minister May said her Cabinet ministers agreed to a draft deal on the UK's exit from the European Union. But she could face the ultimate test as junior coalition partners hint at fresh elections.
The British prime minister has faced shrill opposition to a draft deal from her own Cabinet and Conservative Party since she presented it on Wednesday. Some of her MPs want to oust her from office.
Under pressure, Prime Minister Theresa May defended her Brexit plan in Parliament as three more ministers resigned. Many wonder if she will be the one representing the UK at EU leaders' summit next week.
Resignations, a potential leadership challenge and a dogmatic prime minister battling to save her Brexit deal have plunged London's political world into chaos. DW's Barbara Wesel says the lies are coming home to roost.
