LAWMAKERS PREPARE LEGAL ACTION A further attempt to stop no deal Brexit

0

British lawmakers are preparing legal action in case Prime Minister Boris Johnson tries to defy legislation compelling him to seek a further delay to Brexit.

An opposition bill which would force Johnson to ask the European Union for an extension to Britain’s departure to avoid an October 31 exit without a transition deal was approved by parliament’s appointed upper chamber, the House of Lords, on Friday and Queen Elizabeth is expected to sign it into law on Monday.

Labour MP Hilary Benn said the bill will provide time to go into court, if the government “doesn’t do what’s required..by parliament”.
