U.K. lawmakers hand PM May a win by defeating key Brexit-bill amendment

The U.K. House of Commons on Tuesday rejected a proposal that would have given Parliament the final say on terms of the U.K.'s exit from the European Union if no deal could be reached with European Union negotiators. The vote of 324 to 298 is considered a win for Prime Minister Theresa May. The upper House of Lords in March sought a "meaningful vote" amendment to the bill that takes the U.K. out of the EU.
