House Of Commons Reject More Indicative Votes

According to Reuters, the British Parliament rejected a plan to hold more indicative votes on Brexit.

The House of Commons was tied on the amendment, but House Speaker John Bercow broke the 310-to-310 division by voting against the measure.

Speaker Bercow said he voted against the amendment in accordance with precedent set in the House.

He added that as a principle, important decisions should not be taken except by a majority.
