Jim O'Neill Expects Another House of Lords Brexit Loss

Updated on

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will seek to overturn the first parliamentary defeat for her bill to trigger Brexit after the House of Lords rebuffed a government plea to leave it intact.

The U.K.’s unelected upper house voted by 358 votes to 256 on Wednesday in favor of an amendment to the draft law that would protect the right of European Union nationals to remain living in Britain when the country leaves the bloc.
