LONDON (Reuters) - Andrea Leadsom, who is in charge of the British government’s business in parliament, has warned that lawmakers’ plans to wrest control of the Brexit process on Wednesday may produce a result that the government cannot negotiate.

“The reality is that indicative votes are simply that, they are indicative and the problem looking through the amendments (...) a lot of those are simply undeliverable and certainly not within the time frame,” she told BBC radio.
