PM Theresa May Makes Case Against Another Brexit Referendum

Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday she intended to reschedule a delayed vote in U.K. Parliament on her Brexit plan in the week starting on Jan. 14.

“Many members of this House are concerned that we need to take a decision soon,” May told lawmakers in the House of Commons. “We intend to return to the ‘Meaningful Vote’ debate in the week commencing seventh of January, and hold the vote the following week.”

Last week, May postponed a vote on the plan in the face of deep opposition within her own Conservative Party. She then survived a confidence vote and sought last-minute changes to a Brexit agreement reached with Brussels last month.

With the European Union offering little in the way of concessions to win lawmakers over, an increasing number of politicians are calling for a second referendum.
