The UK government is currently planning to submit Brexit legislation to parliament after the High Court ruled that the country's departure from the European Union must be approved by parliament. Prime Minister Theresa May has stated that the complication will not change the March deadline for triggering article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which will be the start of Brexit negotiations with Europe.
According to The Guardian, the Liberal Democrats, who oppose Brexit, have been advised by constitutional experts to add clauses to a Brexit bill which could force the government to publish a report on its plans to conduct talks with EU members and possibly offer a second referendum on leaving the European bloc, according to the publication.
"We will try to amend the bill and, if necessary, we will do this by proposing extra clauses to it to ensure proper debate and scrutiny of the process and the issues," party leader Tim Farron was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
