Sur­prise law to give MPs fi­nal vote on Brexit deal

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Lon­don: In a sur­prise move on Mon­day, Brexit Sec­re­tary David Davis an­nounced a new par­lia­men­tary bill that will give Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment (MPs) and House of Lords’ peers a vote on Bri­tain’s fi­nal deal with Brus­sels when the coun­try leaves the Euro­pean Union (EU). The move, an­nounced by Davis in the House of Com­mons, was seen as a ma­jor con­ces­sion on the eve of a ma­jor de­bate on Bri­tain’s main with­drawal bill.

A num­ber of Con­ser­va­tive MPs have threat­ened to side with the main op­po­si­tion Labour Party by vot­ing against Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May’s gov­ern­ment in this week’s de­bate.
