UK parliament speaker did not forewarn government on statement- PM May's spokesman

LONDON, March 18 (Reuters) - Britain’s parliamentary speaker did not forewarn the government about his statement, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman said on Monday after it was announced that May could not bring the same Brexit deal back for another vote.

May’s spokesman told reporters he was not yet in a position to comment on the statement, when John Bercow said the government would have to bring a different proposition to parliament if it wanted to stage another Brexit vote.
