LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s government intends to bring forward parliament’s mid-year recess to Thursday, a parliamentary official said on Monday.

The official said the government has tabled a motion for parliament’s early closure to lawmakers, who are debating changes to Prime Minister Theresa May’s plans for leaving the European Union put forward by Brexit supporters.
