UK PM May wins vote on customs in boost for her Brexit vision
Prime Minister Theresa May won a vote in parliament on Wednesday that threw out a proposal which would have forced the government to report on the efforts it had made to negotiate membership of the European Union`s customs union.
The House of Commons voted 325 to 298 to reject the proposed amendment by the upper house of parliament to the government`s key Brexit blueprint that will sever legal ties with the EU.
Lawmakers instead accepted a compromise amendment which would force the government to report on the efforts made to negotiate a customs arrangement with the EU.
