British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday pledged to set out the government’s Brexit plans in a formal policy document, a White Paper, responding to members of Parliaments (MPs) who have been calling for greater Brexit transparency.

The latest promise came during the prime minister’s Question Time, one day after the British Supreme Court ruled against the government regarding whether it needs the parliamentary approval before officially starting Brexit.

May said she recognized there was an “appetite” for a White Paper setting out her “bold plan.”

Local media reports say that a number of Conservative MPs had joined Labor in asking for such a move.

Reports say that a parliamentary bill paving the way for talks with the European Union could be introduced as early as Thursday. Enditem
