LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of Britain's main opposition Labour Party said he would ensure there was Brexit deal with the European Union were he to win power, in contrast to Prime Minister Theresa May who has said she would be prepared to walk from a bad deal.

When asked whether he would contemplate a scenario where Britain failed to strike an arrangement with the rest of the bloc, Jeremy Corbyn said: "There's going to be a deal."

"We will make sure there is a deal," he said during an interview on Sky News on Sunday.

Britons vote in a national election next week with polls showing May's lead over Labour has narrowed in recent days.
