Lawmakers in the U.K. House of Commons are holding cross-party talks in a bid to stop Prime Minister Theresa May from leaving the European Union without a trade deal, the main opposition Labour Party’s finance spokesman said.

“It’s not going to happen,” John McDonnell told BBC Television’s “Andrew Marr Show” on Sunday. “I don’t think there’s a majority in Parliament for no deal. I think on a cross-party basis, you will see in the debates in the coming weeks, the government will get the message: There will be a deal.”
