19

LONDON – British Prime Minister Theresa May faces a showdown on Tuesday with lawmakers who want power to force her government to go back to the negotiating table if they reject a Brexit deal, testing her plans for leaving the European Union.

Officials from May’s Conservative Party have been lobbying lawmakers to reject amendments handed down from the upper house of parliament on her Brexit blueprint, the EU withdrawal bill.

On Tuesday, parliament will debate a demand for a “meaningful vote” on any agreement May negotiates with Brussels before leaving the bloc next March.
