Ministers of the British Government urged the country's prime minister Theresa May to threaten members of the House of Lords (the upper house of parliament) with the abolition or substantial curtailment of their powers in the event of blocking the process of UK withdrawal from the EU on their part, Daily Mail informed.
The publication notes that the majority of members of the House of Lords opposed the country's exit from the European Union.
The two ministers told the publication that the government should be prepared for a tough response "to ensure that the will of the British people is upheld". "The upper chamber should be aware that if they block it, they are facing an existential crisis," one of the ministers said.
Also, according to the publication, Theresa May herself likes such an approach.
As it is known, British people voted to leaving the European Union on June 23.
