British finance minister Philip Hammond will join Prime Minister Theresa May in voting against a 'no deal' Brexit in parliament on Wednesday, a spokesman for his department said.

Earlier, May said she would back the government's motion, which states that parliament rejects leaving the European Union without a deal on March 29, but notes that leaving without an agreement remains the legal default unless a deal is agreed.

Hammond will vote the same way as May, the spokesman said.
