First Time In History- UK Government Found In Contempt of Parliament
Theresa May’s government has been found in contempt of parliament after it refused to comply with a motion passed by MPs demanding that it release the full official legal advice on the prime minister’s Brexit deal.
MPs voted by 311 to 293 to find ministers in contempt. It is the first time any UK government has been found in contempt by its MPs in parliamentary history.
The motion, passed Tuesday evening, did not name any individual minister.
