LONDON, March 2 - British Prime Minister Theresa May has been clear that the legislation needed for her to trigger formal divorce talks with the European Union should be passed by parliament unamended, her spokesman said on Thursday.

Parliament's upper house inflicted a defeat on the government on Wednesday, voting for a change to her Brexit plan that says she can only trigger divorce talks if she promises to protect the rights of EU citizens living in Britain.The government hopes to overturn the changes when the legislation returns to the lower house of parliament, which last month passed the bill with no amendments.

"The prime minister has made clear her intention that the bill should be passed unamended," her spokesman said.

"MPs (members of the lower house) have already voted it through unamended at the first stage so we expect that to be the case again."
