Eurosceptic lawmaker Rees-Mogg expects UK govt to set out Brexit position in amendment
Lawmakers will on Tuesday debate and vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's next steps, after the overwhelming rejection of her Brexit plan earlier this month, and have been proposing "amendments" seeking to shape the future direction of Brexit.
May has said she wants to secure concessions relating to arrangements regarding the Northern Irish border in order to win support for her deal, and Rees-Mogg said he thought the government would put forward its own amendment with more details.
