The Legal Challenges Facing Britain's EU Divorce
U.K. lawmakers approved an opposition Labour Party motion calling on the government to give Parliament the right to examine its negotiating strategy before Brexit talks that are set to start by the end of March. The motion, and a government amendment saying that parliamentary scrutiny should respect the referendum vote in June for Britain to leave the European Union, were passed by acclamation in the House of Commons in London just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday, without the need to count votes. The decision doesn’t give lawmakers the right to vote on the government’s negotiating strategy after Keir Starmer, the Labour Brexit spokesman, made clear the motion was a call for scrutiny only.
