The Speaker, John Bercow, has allowed MPs to debate an amendment that could force Theresa May to present a newÂ BrexitÂ plan within three days if her current proposal is voted down, a decision likely to enrage the government.
Bercow has selected an amendment led by the Conservative MP Dominic Grieve to the business motion that sets up the latest five-day debate on the prime ministerâ€™s plan, which will culminate in a crunch vote next Tuesday.
The news comes as Labour edged closer to promising a near-immediate vote of no-confidence in the government if May loses the vote.
The amendment says that following defeat of the governmentâ€™s plan, which is widely anticipated, â€œa minister of the crown shall table within three sitting days a motion â€¦ considering the process of exiting theÂ European Unionunder article 50â€.
