British Prime Minister Theresa May has made it clear that any scrutiny of her Brexit plan would not change the outcome of Britain's June 23 vote to leave the EUBritish Prime Minister Theresa May signalled Wednesday that she would let parliament scrutinise her Brexit plan before starting the formal EU exit process — but dismissed calls for a vote on the terms. May stopped short, however, of agreeing a vote for MPs on her plan before she triggers Article 50 of the European Union's Lisbon Treaty, which formally begins the departure process. May's comments came ahead of a Commons debate Wednesday on calls by the Labour main opposition for MPs to be allowed "properly to scrutinise" the government's strategy.
