    The UK Parliament is discussing a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Theresa May, initiated by the Labour Party. The debate is taking place a day after her Brexit deal project was voted down by lawmakers with 202 votes for versus 432 against.

    The defeat of the deal has heightened uncertainty around Brexit: Britain is set to quit the European Union on 29 March, however, there is still no settled deal on the terms of withdrawal, which exacerbates the risks of a no-deal Brexit.
