LONDON (AP) — British Prime Minister Theresa May looked set today to postpone Parliament’s vote on her European Union divorce deal to avoid a shattering defeat, throwing Brexit plans into chaos just weeks after Britain and the bloc finally reached an agreement on the U.K.’s departure.

The pound sank amid the political uncertainty, hitting an 18-month low against the U.S. dollar of $1.2660.

The House of Commons Speaker’s office said May would make a previously unscheduled statement to lawmakers about Brexit this morning.
