Conservative lawmakers allowed 'free vote' on Brexit options - UK lawmakers

LONDON, March 27 (Reuters) - Conservative lawmakers will be able to vote with their consciences, a so-called free vote, when considering alternative Brexit options later on Wednesday, two of them said.

Two Conservative lawmakers, Kevin Hollinrake and James Cartlidge, said on Twitter Prime Minister Theresa May’s parliamentary enforcers, or whips, had said they can have a free vote. Cartlidge added that May’s cabinet team of top ministers would abstain on the different options. (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan, writing by Elizabeth Piper. Editing by Andrew MacAskill)
