British govt wins key parliament vote on Brexit ‘no deal’

LONDON, June 12, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – British Prime Minister Theresa May
avoided a major defeat Tuesday after MPs rejected a plan that would have
given parliament a veto over the final Brexit deal — but only after making
concessions.

The House of Commons voted by 324 to 298 to overturn an amendment to the EU
(Withdrawal) Bill which would have removed her power to unilaterally walk
away from talks with Brussels, sending the bill back to the unelected House
of Lords.
