Britains May Offers Pro-eu Rebels Brexit Compromise Source

23

LONDON – Prime Minister Theresa May has agreed a compromise with pro-EU MPs in her Conservative Party that offer parliament a vote on future steps in Brexit talks if Britain fails to agree a deal by mid-February, a source said on Thursday.

May was forced to quell a rebellion on Tuesday after she faced defeat on a vote in parliament over her Brexit blueprint, or EU withdrawal bill, which will sever ties with the European Union.

Several pro-EU MPs threatened to rebel over whether parliament should have more control over any final deal agreed with the EU in Brussels. They planned to vote against a government proposal, which they said did not offer them a “meaningful vote”.
