U.K.'s May Warned of More Brexit Tests in Parliament, Times SaysBy
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has been warned she will have to pass at least seven bills through Parliament as part of the Brexit process, exposing her to ambush by pro-European Union lawmakers, the Times newspaper reported.
Legislation covering immigration, tax, agriculture, trade and customs, fisheries, data protection and sanctions will be needed to prepare for the future, the newspaper said, citing a leaked document presented to government. Other bills may also be needed, the Times said, potentially revealing divisions in her own Conservative Party in Parliament.
The report, in Tuesday’s edition, came after May secured parliamentary backing to trigger the process for leaving the EU after a series of votes in the House of Commons and House of Lords late Monday. She says she will submit formal notification for two years of talks on leaving the bloc by the end of March.
