British Prime Minister Theresa May says the government is preparing for "every eventuality" in Brexit negotiations, including the possibility of them ending without a deal.
May says "it is profoundly in our interests for the negotiations to succeed" and result in a new relationship between the U.K. and the bloc.
But she says "it is our responsibility as a government to prepare for every eventuality. And let me reassure everyone in this hall — that is exactly what we are doing."
Both Britain and the EU have expressed impatience with the slow progress of Brexit talks, which are bogged down in details of the divorce agreement.
