Groundhog Day for May as UK Brexit bill faces new challenge

AP

The British government is facing another knife-edge vote in Parliament over how much control lawmakers should have in the country's departure from the European Union, reports AP from London.

The House of Commons is debating a proposal yesterday that would make the government get Parliament's approval before agreeing to a final divorce deal with the EU.

Prime Minister Theresa May faced rebellion last week from pro-EU lawmakers in the governing Conservative Party, but avoided defeat by promising Parliament would get a "meaningful vote" on the U.K.-EU divorce agreement before Brexit occurs next March.

Pro-EU legislators accuse the government of going back on its word. They are trying to amend the flagship EU Withdrawal Bill so they can send the government back to the negotiating table if they don't like the deal.
