UK Prime Minister Suffers Commons Defeat over Brexit Plan B

London, Theresa May, British Prime Minister has

to present MPs with a new Brexit plan within three days if her current

proposal is voted down next week, after a procedural amendment to

the plan’s progress through the Commons was passed by 308 votes to

297 amid chaotic scenes.

The amendment to the business motion for the plan, drawn up

by the Conservative former attorney general Dominic Grieve, gives May

the deadline to put forward new plans if she loses the vote, as many

expect, next Tuesday.

The amendment says that if the deal is defeated a minister of

the crown shall table within three sitting days a motion, considering the

process of exiting the EU under article 50.
