May meets Danish, Dutch leaders as lawmakers call for Brexit vote

Prime Minister Theresa May met Danish counterpart Lars-Lokke Rasmussen on Monday as she faced growing calls for British lawmakers to be given a vote on her Brexit negotiating strategy.

May said in Copenhagen that she held an “excellent discussion” with Rasmussen and promised that Britain will be “a fully engaged and active member of the EU until the point at which we leave.”

May was also scheduled to meet Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Monday as she steps up diplomacy to air her views of how negotiations should proceed between Britain and the other 27 EU member states.

But a growing number of opposition lawmakers and some from May’s own Conservative Party are urging her to allow a vote in parliament on the government’s Brexit policy.

“The country has a right to know the government’s Brexit strategy and parliament must vote on it,” said lawmaker Ed Miliband, a former Labour leader.
