“With Brexit delayed and the new departure date up in the air, the House of Commons voted to give itself control of the parliamentary timetable starting Wednesday so lawmakers can vote on alternatives to May’s withdrawal deal. The government usually controls the scheduling of votes in Parliament.

Lawmakers who backed Monday’s motion, which passed 329-302, hope the planned “indicative votes” will narrow the options down to one that can secure majority support. Possible options include a “soft Brexit” that maintains close economic ties with the EU or scrapping Britain’s departure altogether.

Several government ministers quit their posts so they could back the motion. The government opposed the measure because it gave lawmakers temporary control of the parliamentary agenda, usually the government’s prerogative.”

Time to see what Parliament can do!
