Cabinet meeting taking place after Speaker's Brexit intervention

The government is considering a statement by parliament's speaker that Prime Minister Theresa May could not put her Brexit deal to a new vote.

That's unless it was fundamentally changed, May's office said on Monday.

In comments that blindsided May's office, speaker John Bercow said the government could not bring forward proposals for a vote in parliament that were substantially the same as ones that had been defeated twice before.

"We note the speaker's statement. This is something that requires proper consideration," a spokesman for May's office said.
