Lords vote to give UK parliament right to block Brexit ‘no deal’

London (AFP) – Members of Britain’s unelected House of Lords voted Monday to allow parliament to block the government from leaving the EU without a deal, although the motion must be approved by MPs before taking effect.

Lords voted 335 to 244 for an amendment to give lawmakers the final say on the outcome of Brexit negotiations with Brussels — including staying in the bloc if they do not like the final agreement.
