UK House of Commons speaker warns third Brexit vote must be different

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

The House of Commons speaker John Bercow again warned the government on Wednesday (March 27) it could not bring forward proposals for a vote in parliament on its Brexit divorce deal unless it was in a fundamentally different form.

Bercow said he understood that the government was considering bringing its twice-defeated Brexit deal back to parliament for a vote on Thursday (March 28) or Friday (March 29).

"I do expect the government to meet the test of change.

They should not seek to circumvent my ruling," he said in parliament.

Last week, Bercow threw the government's Brexit plans into turmoil by ruling it could not bring forward proposals for a vote in parliament if they were substantially the same as the ones that had been submitted before.

While British Prime Minster Theresa May was telling her lawmakers of her intention to quit in a parliament committee room, MPs in the main chamber debated eight Brexit options ranging from leaving abruptly with no deal to revoking the divorce papers or holding a new referendum.

Several options on the table would see much closer alignments with the EU than May has been willing to consider, including staying in the common market or a customs union.

They will vote at 1900 GMT on a ballot paper for as many proposals as they wish.

Results will be announced after 2100 GMT.
