London (CNN)British Prime Minister Theresa May has committed to placing a final Brexit deal to a vote in both houses of the UK parliament.
In a much-anticipated speech in London, May said that once Britain had negotiated a final deal to leave the European Union, it would be placed before the House of Commons and the House of Lords for approval.

Such a deal could amount to "associate membership" of the customs union, she said.
