UK lawmakers to have new debate on finalizing Brexit laws on June 20

LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmakers will debate the final wording of the law that will end the country’s membership of the European Union on June 20, the government’s parliamentary organizer Andrea Leadsom said on Thursday.

The legislation, which is in the final and most tense stages of becoming law, is due to be discussed in the upper chamber on June 18. If changes are made during that debate, as is expected, it will then be debated by the lower house on June 20. Both must agree on the final wording before it becomes law.
