LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday agreed a compromise with rebels in his party, giving parliament the final say on whether powers in a new bill that would breach the Brexit divorce deal can be used.

A statement issued on behalf of the government and some lawmakers who had threatened to vote down the bill said ministers had agreed to an amendment which would place limits on the ability to use the powers it contains.
