If parliament rejects confidence vote, PM Johnson has green light for Brexit plan- spokesman

Wed, 25th Sep 2019 19:36

LONDON, Sept 25 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson will see it as a green light to get on with his plan to
leave the European Union on Oct. 31 if opposition parties
decline his offer to hold a no-confidence vote on Thursday, his
spokesman said.

"If MPs (Members of Parliament) don't take the opportunity
to say they have no confidence in the government, the government
should be allowed to get on with its strategy of taking the UK
out on Oct. 31," Johnson's spokesman told reporters.
