MPs wrangle over scrutiny for Brexit terms

Britain’s opposition Labour Party today moved to pressure the government to spell out detail about its specific plans for parliamentary scrutiny and accountability over the eventual terms of plans for the mechanism for the country to leave the EU.

The Guardian reports:

In a last-minute concession, the government accepted a Labour motion calling for MPs to have more say over the strategy for leaving the EU before article 50 is triggered by the end of March.

May had been facing her first government defeat over the motion on Wednesday, as a number of Conservatives indicated they were prepared to vote with Labour to demand greater public debate over the Brexit negotiating strategy.
