LONDON (Reuters) - Andrea Leadsom, who is in charge of the British government’s business in parliament, will make a statement to lawmakers on Tuesday, her office said on Twitter.

A business statement is used to set out what the government plans to do with parliamentary time.

On Monday, lawmakers voted to take control of parliamentary time on Wednesday to hold votes on possible alternative Brexit outcomes, so Leadsom is likely to be setting out when the government business which had been due to take place on Wednesday afternoon will happen instead.
