The UK House of Commons rebelled Tuesday against Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson by agreeing to consider a bill that would bar the government from implementing Brexit on Oct. 31 in the absence of an accord with the European Union.

By a vote of 328-301, the Commons seized control of the legislative agenda and scheduled a debate for Wednesday on the proposal to compel Johnson to ask the EU for another extension if the alternative is a no-deal Brexit at the end of next month.
