The head of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom has on Thursday said, the United Kingdom parliament will debate and further vote on British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal “plan B” on January 29.
May’s proposed Brexit deal was defeated in parliament this week by a large majority, and Leadsom said the prime minister has put forward a step and announced a statement on her next motion on Monday.
According to Reuters, Leadsom told parliament: “A full day’s debate on the motion will take place on Tuesday 29 January, subject to the agreement of the house.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May has faced a defeat on Tuesday, after parliament chose to vote no-Brexit deal, triggering political chaos that could lead to a disorderly Britain exit from the European Union (EU).
May’s Brexit agreement was voted down by 432-202, the biggest defeat in the history of the House of Commons. March 29, the date is set for Britain to leave the EU and to exit the European project that it has joined in 1973, according to the news reported by Reuters.
The leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn told the Commons after the voting, “Her governing principle of delay and denial has reached the end of the line.”
