BREXIT Parliamentary VOTE is NextThe current Parliament must approve BREXIT with one more vote. Parliament is debating that bill today. The restrictive short bill is scheduled for the Parliamentary vote. It is expected to pass. A BREXIT white paper is coming from The Prime Minister. PM, Theresa May, is responding to Parliament.
