British PM Theresa May's government faces contempt vote over Brexit legal advice
Opposition parties and the small Northern Irish party that props up May`s minority government are furious that it only provided an outline of the legal basis for its Brexit deal after parliament voted to be given the full advice. They put forward a motion, to be voted on later on Tuesday, that would find ministers in contempt of parliament and order the immediate publication of the advice.
