British MPs to vote on May's Brexit timetable

Britain has been pitched into uncertainty by the June 23 referendum to leave the European UnionBritish lawmakers will be asked to vote Wednesday on Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to start Brexit by March next year in a parliamentary showdown between the government and pro-EU MPs. May has agreed to provide further details on her negotiating strategy before triggering the Article 50 exit process — as long as MPs back her timetable and the result of the June referendum to leave the European Union. The House of Commons vote is not binding, and the government is still fighting a legal challenge at the Supreme Court against moves to give parliament the final say on starting the withdrawal process.
