A setback for May in the Commons

  • MPs, including 11 Tory rebels, backed an amendment giving them a legal guarantee of a vote on the final Brexit deal

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who travelled to Brussels yesterday, Thursday, for a dinner with the 27 other EU leaders, did so on the back of a setback for her Brexit agenda in the House of Commons.

MPs, including 11 Tory rebels, backed an amendment giving them a legal guarantee of a vote on the final Brexit deal.

In theory this gives Parliament the final say on a deal and could therefore force ministers to adopt a 'softer' Brexit to avoid delays in negotiations and the final implementation.
