LONDON (Reuters) - The government must come up with plans to allow parliament to vote on a series of options to break the impasse over Brexit or lawmakers will take over Britain’s departure from the European Union, a Labour MP said on Wednesday.

“The government should come forward with plans to hold indicative votes on different options, including a customs union, so we can get on with this,” said Yvette Cooper, a lawmaker who has led efforts to wrest control of Brexit from the government.

“If the prime minister won’t sort this out and build some consensus on the way forward then Parliament will need to instead,” she said in a statement.
