Attorney General Geoffrey Cox

The UK's opposition party, Labour Party is pressing to throw despise of Parliament procedure in the prosecution against the government over the act of refusing to disclose in full legal recommendation that was giving as regards the British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit intended actions to achieve the goal.

This motion, was pronounced yesterday by Labour's Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer, and was supported by five other parties, including the governing Conservative Party's government associates, the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

"It is apparent to us – and we believe the overwhelming majority of the House [of Commons] - that the information released today does not constitute the final and full advice provided by the Attorney General to the Cabinet," this was contained in a letter which was collectively certified with signatures by representatives from each of the six parties.

"We would now ask that you consider giving the House of Commons the opportunity to debate and consider this matter of contempt at the earliest opportunity," the statement quoted.

The letter was received by the Speaker of the UK Parliament's lower chamber House of Commons, who is the Chairman for the argument in an ordered setting in the chamber and must now take the decision on whether to grant the contempt motion to be voted on by the house or not.

If the motion get the approval, a cross-party body of the parliamentarians will now convened for the accomplishment of the work to investigate the alleged contempt and to give consideration on whether to suggest a punishment.

Any punishment that is being recommended will go through the process of approval by the Commons before the punishment can be given.
