Theresa May wins vote in parliament on Brexit

British Prime Minister Theresa May avoided a major upset in the House of Commons on Tuesday after lawmakers rejected a series of proposed amendments to her Brexit blueprint.

The House of Commons has voted by 324 to 298 to overturn an amendment to the British government's landmark EU Withdrawal Bill.

The amendment would have given parliament a veto over the final Brexit deal by removing Theresa May's power to leave the EU. The Lords amendment would have given parliament the power to decide what happened next in the event of a 'no-deal', with the possibility of going back to the negotiating table or even staying in the bloc.
