LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmakers may have an opportunity on Thursday to vote on whether to have indicative votes on different Brexit options, one of the most senior Brexit-supporting ministers in Prime Minister Theresa May’s government said.

When asked by a lawmaker if the government would grant a series of indicative votes on how to leave the EU, Environment Secretary Michael Gove told parliament:

“I think that, depending on how the House votes today, we may have an opportunity to vote on that proposition tomorrow.”

He added: “We as quickly as we possibly can (need to) find consensus.”
