Rebels Draft Bill to Take Control (7:15 a.m.)

Members of Parliament who are opposing a no-deal Brexit will publish a draft law later on Monday aimed at handing control over the process to senior figures in Parliament, if May’s deal is killed.

Tory former minister Nick Boles announced the move in an interview on BBC radio’s Today program.

Under the plan, the Brexit process would be passed to the most experienced members of Parliament -- on the Commons Liaison Committee, Boles said. The best option would be if May comes forward with a sensible compromise, such as one modeled on Norway’s relationship with the EU, he added.
