British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday won approval for her plan on how much say lawmakers should get over Brexit, defeating a attempt by pro-European Union rebels to give parliament more influence.
Lawmakers in the House of Commons voted 319 to 303 against an amendment put forward by the rebels and then accepted May's proposal without a vote. The result had been expected after one of the leading pro-EU lawmakers changed his mind and sided with the government earlier in the day.
