Britains May Offers Pro-eu Rebels Brexit Compromise Source

LONDON – Prime Minister Theresa May has agreed a compromise with pro-EU lawmakers in her Conservative Party that offers parliament a vote on any future steps in Brexit talks if Britain fails to agree a deal by mid-February, a source said on Thursday.

May was forced to quell a rebellion earlier this week when she faced defeat on a vote in parliament over the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, which will sever ties with the EU.

Several pro-EU lawmakers threatened to rebel over whether parliament should have more control over any final deal agreed with the EU in Brussels. They had planned to vote against a government proposal, which they said did not offer them a “meaningful vote”.
