MPs call for parliament vote on 'hard' Brexit

Britain voted to leave the European Union in a referendum in June 2016British MPs from all sides called on Monday for a parliamentary vote on future ties with the EU and warned hard Brexit was a “grave danger,” but the government swiftly dismissed the demand. “We will reject any attempt to undo the referendum result,” Britain’s Brexit minister David Davis said in parliament, amid mounting pressure from former leaders of the two main opposition parties and among his own party’s ranks.
