The Times: MPs win right to final vote on Brexit

The Times: MPs win right to final vote on Brexit

14 December 2017 | 03:46 | FOCUS News Agency
London. Theresa May suffered her first Brexit defeat in the Commons last night as Tory “mutineers” ensured that MPs must approve the terms of Britain’s departure from the EU, The Times writes.
The move prompted recriminations from Leave supporters who accused pro-Remain MPs of trying to delay or reverse the EU referendum result by creating the opportunity to reject the terms of withdrawal at a later date.
The rebels, led by the former attorney-general Dominic Grieve, won the vote by a majority of four despite a last-minute concession by ministers and heavy pressure on MPs from Tory whips to back the government. His amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill was supported by 309 MPs, with 305 opposing it.
