British lawmakers vote to seize control of Brexit for a day

Updated : March 26, 2019 06:20 AM IST

Lawmakers will now vote on a range of Brexit options on Wednesday, giving parliament a chance to indicate whether it can agree on a deal with closer ties to Brussels - and then try to push the government in that direction.
Nearly three years after the 2016 EU membership referendum, and four days before Britain was supposed to leave the bloc, it remains still unclear how, when or even if Brexit will take place, with parliament and the nation still bitterly divided.
Brexit minister Stephen Barclay had said on Sunday that if parliament took control of the Brexit process, a snap election - which the main opposition Labour party would be likely to back - could be the consequence.
