UK: Theresa May government suffers fresh Brexit defeat, sparking new showdown 19.6.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Britain's House of Lords inflicted another defeat on the government today over its flagship Brexit bill, sending it back to MPs and setting up a fresh showdown between Prime Minister Theresa May and her pro-European rebels. Unelected peers in the upper house voted by 354 to 235 to support a rebel amendment on the role parliament should play if the government fails to secure a deal with the European Union before Britain leaves the bloc in March 2019. "I want to ensure that parliament does have a meaningful vote and I don't want to see that left to chance," said Lord Hailsham, the member of May's Conservative Party who proposed the motion. The amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill was drawn up in consultation with pro-European MPs in the lower House of Commons, who will have a chance to vote on it themselves on Wednesday. They had threatened to rebel on the same issue when they debated the bill last week, but held off following personal assurances from May that she would heed their concerns. However, her ...
