According to a report by Reuters, Prime Minister Theresa May won a vote in parliament on Tuesday, after offering a compromise on plans to give parliament a meaningful vote later this year on the terms of Britain's exit from the EU. MPs voted 324 to 298 to accept a proposal saying that if parliament rejects the final Brexit deal, a government minister will set out how the government plans to proceed within 28 days. A rebellion that threatened to undermine May's authority was avoided by a promise to listen to a leading pro-European lawmaker and possibly add further safeguards giving parliament more influence.
