The Lords will vote one week from now on a further alteration which would give MPs a “significant vote” on the result of Mays transactions with the 28-part alliance. On the off chance that that vote likewise conflicts with her, she could go under weight from her own particular MPs to consent to that revision going into law.
The altered bill will come back to the House of Commons on March 13 and 14, when MPs will face off regarding whether to keep the progressions.
