UK cabinet meets after parliament takes control of Brexit for a day

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION British lawmakers arrived at Number 10 Downing Street on Tuesday (March 26) following Monday's (March 25) parliamentary vote to take over control of Brexit for a day in a highly unusual bid to find a way through the Brexit impasse, after Prime Minister Theresa May's EU divorce deal was rejected again.

The vote underlined the extent to which May has lost authority over her own lawmakers and ministers, though she said the government would not be bound by the results of the so-called indicative votes.

Lawmakers will now vote on a range of Brexit options on Wednesday (March 27), giving parliament a chance to indicate whether it can agree on a deal with closer ties to Brussels - and then try to push the government in that direction.

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay has already said that if parliament took control of the Brexit process, a snap election - which the main opposition Labour party would be likely to back - could be the consequence.

May too has made clear that she would not implement a proposal that ran counter to her election manifesto, which promised a clean break with the EU.
