LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a revolt from members of her own government as lawmakers try to prevent her from taking Britain out of the European Union in a month's time without a divorce deal.

Three junior government ministers write in Tuesday's Daily Mail that they will vote with lawmakers from all parties to stop a no-deal departure unless May agrees to delay Brexit and guarantee "we are not swept over the precipice on March 29."

May has insisted Britain will leave the EU on schedule, even though she still hasn't reached an agreement that can win parliamentary approval.

The main opposition Labour Party on Monday took a step to back calls for a referendum on the Brexit deal as a way to break the deadlock.
