Parliamentarians endorsed the prime minister’s plan to trigger Brexit talks by the end of March, while securing the right to scrutinize her negotiating plan first.
Six hours of debate in the House of Commons were followed by a Vote of 448 to 75, setting up what Brexit Secretary David Davis called “the most important and complex negotiations in modern times.”
The vote is not legally binding, but is politically significant given that May has been unwilling to reveal her intentions and opposition parties would rather not have signed off on her timetable. A Supreme Court hearing that enters its fourth day on Thursday may still end with May’s plan being subjected to a more formal vote.
