UK PM May faces House of Lords defeat over post-Brexit rights of EU nationals

UK PM May faces House of Lords defeat over post-Brexit rights of EU nationalsBy Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May faces her first defeat over her plan to trigger Britain’s exit from the European Union, with parliament’s upper house set to vote on Wednesday in favor of forcing her to guarantee the future rights of EU nationals. Opposition parties in the Lords, where May’s Conservatives do not have a majority, say they have enough support to pass an amendment to the legislation to include a guarantee on the post-Brexit rights of EU citizens currently living in Britain. Any changes made in the Lords would need to be approved by the lower house, the House of Commons, which last month passed the legislation without attaching any conditions, something that may prolong a process May has she wants completed quickly.
