UK ministers focused on getting Brexit deal through parliament, May says

LONDON, Dec 20 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday that her cabinet's focus was on building support for her Brexit deal after different ministers floated contrasting back-up plans should her Brexit deal fail to pass in parliament next month.

"Cabinet ministers (and) I have all been very clear that we are working and focusing on ensuring that we can get the deal that we have agreed with the European Union through parliament in the meaningful vote," May said at a news conference.

"Everybody is very clear, not only what government policy is, but what we are all individually and collectively focused on is working to ensure that that deal is able to be agreed." (Reporting by William James and Michael Holden, writing by Alistair Smout; editing by Stephen Addison)
