Leading pro-EU rebel lawmaker backs down, will support government on Brexit laws
LONDON, June 20 (Reuters) – The pro-European Union lawmaker leading a group of rebels threatening to vote against Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit law said on Wednesday that he had accepted assurances from minister and would now support the government.
“Having finally obtained, with a little bit more difficulty than I would have wished, the obvious acknowledgment of the sovereignty of this place over the executive in black and white language, I am prepared to
accept the government’s difficulty and in the circumstances to accept the form of amendment it wants,” Conservative lawmaker Dominic Grieve told parliament.
