Lawmakers defy May for a second time on Brexit

Update : 09 Mar 2017, 12:23 AM
The vote, which passed by 366 to 268, attaches an extra condition to the “European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill” – legislation which will give May the power to trigger divorce talks. She plans to use that power later this month. The amended bill now demands that Britain’s parliament has to approve any exit deal before it is debated by the European Parliament, or, if talks fail, that lawmakers must vote to approve a decision to walk away without a deal. Brexit minister David Davis said the government would seek to overturn the changes when the bill is presented for approval to the lower chamber, where May has a slim majority.
