The U.K. government will put the Brexit deal it agrees with the European Union to a parliamentary vote, Prime Minister Theresa May said Tuesday.
In a wide-ranging speech on how the U.K. plans to make a clean break from the EU, following the shocking referendum result last June, May said she was seeking a "new and equal partnership" with the rest of the 27-country bloc.
The issue of a parliamentary vote had been hard-fought, with the government initially against putting the negotiations through parliament. The current Conservative government has a small majority in parliament and there are members within the Tories that do not support Brexit, which could make the vote tricky.
"I can confirm today the government will put the deal to a vote in both houses of Parliament before it comes into force," Teresa May told an audience of diplomats and officials in London.
