Law­mak­ers to show strat­egy for Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions in May

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

LON­DON | Bri­tain’s House of Com­mons voted Wed­nes­day to back Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May’s March 31 dead­line to start the U.K.’s for­mal exit from the Euro­pean Union, af­ter the govern­ment agreed to pub­lish de­tails of its ne­go­ti­at­ing plan.

The Con­ser­va­tive govern­ment has been re­luc­tant to re­veal much about its strat­egy or goals, say­ing that would weaken its hand in ne­go­ti­a­tions with the EU. Fear­ing de­feat through an op­po­si­tion mo­tion call­ing for min­is­ters to dis­close more de­tails be­fore the talks start, the govern­ment agreed to pub­lish a plan. How­ever, it did not make any prom­ises on how spe­cific the plan would be.

The mo­tion passed eas­ily af­ter the main op­po­si­tion La­bor Party said it would ac­cept the amend­ment.
