LONDON (AP) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has implored lawmakers to back her EU divorce agreement, telling them that "if this deal is not passed then Brexit could be lost."
    
May - her voice reduced to a raw whisper after days of frantic Brexit diplomacy - spoke as the House of Commons began debating the deal before a vote later Tuesday.
    
She said she had secured "improvements" from the European Union to the deal that lawmakers rejected in January.
    
But many pro-Brexit lawmakers still think the agreement keeps Britain bound too closely to the EU and say they plan to vote against it.
    
Britain is due to leave the bloc in less than three weeks, on March 29.
