Reuters  |  LONDON 

(Reuters) - Britain's main opposition will press for contempt proceedings against the government if fails to produce the full legal advice she has received over her deal, the party's said on Sunday.

"In nine days time, parliament has got to take probably the most important decision it has taken for a generation and it's obviously important that we know the full legal implications of what the wants us to sign up to," told

"I don't want to go down this path ... (but) if they don't produce it tomorrow then we will start contempt proceedings. This would be a collision course between the government and parliament."
