Theresa May's Government Found In Contempt Of Parliament

Theresa May's government has been found in contempt of parliament after it refused to comply with a motion passed by MPs demanding that it release the full official legal advice on the prime minister's Brexit deal.

It is the first time any UK government has been found in contempt by its MPs in parliamentary history.

Following the vote the government announced that they would now comply with the demand to publish the advice, but only after a separate parliamentary committee have examined it.
