May's Brexit Bill Returns: A Guide to the Main Voting Battles

Brexit news: Jeremy Corbyn faces revolt as five Labour MPs resign | Daily Star

"The government can not demonstrate the flexibility necessary for a successful deal if its hands are tied midway through that process", Davis said.

The government was forced into a major compromise on Tuesday when it had to agree to give parliament a greater role in Brexit negotiations to avert a defeat at the hands of rebels from her own party who want to keep close European Union ties after Britain leaves the bloc in March next year.

The government's victory was the first major win in two days of debates on its European Union withdrawal bill, which will sever ties with the European Union, after the upper house of parliament, the House of Lords, introduced 15 changes. The strained parliament session underlined deep divisions over Britain's European Union exit.

Former deputy prime minister Damian Green wrote in the Sunday Express that the majority of the crucial votes would "pass easily".

Earlier, Brexit minister David Davis told parliament a defeat would undermine negotiations with Brussels and warned lawmakers the government would never allow them to "reverse Brexit".

Believe me, in Westminster, there is a very very big difference between the promise of more serious chat about something with the possibility of a change - and a promise actually to do something different, especially if it is made by the occupant of Number 10.

A statement from the Department for Exiting the European Union on Tuesday said David Davis had set three tests for any new amendment: not undermining the negotiations; not changing the constitutional role of parliament and government in negotiating global treaties; and respecting the referendum result.

Anna Soubry, a pro-EU Conservative lawmaker, said she knew of one legislator who would not vote with their conscience because of "threats to their personal safety" and that of staff and family.

In a statement, Corbyn defended his decision to oppose the EEA vote, despite telling his MPs to abstain in parliament.

After days of frantic lobbying by Conservative officials to try to get the party on board, May renewed appeals for unity over the "meaningful vote", after the government appeared to have secured a compromise to stop a similar rebellion on Wednesday over Britain's trading ties with the EU.

"And the thought of no deal absolutely terrifies us".

She gave them a personal assurance that MPs and peers will be given a say in the final stages of the withdrawal negotiations.

Remain-supporting Conservative MPs had threatened to defeat the government on an amendment known as the "meaningful vote" amendment, which would have given Parliament a wide-ranging veto to May's Brexit deal, or even bring about another referendum on whether Britain should leave the EU.

Lawmakers were told to back that amendment rather than one on the EEA, an order some pro-EU Labour politicians said they would defy.

Her offer was accepted by pro-Brussels Tory ringleader Dominic Grieve, who withdrew his proposal for a "meaningful vote" by Parliament on the deal.

Controversially, the government only scheduled a few hours of parliamentary time for the Commons to debate and vote on the proposed amendments.

"That's what we were voting for last night".

The UK justice minister Philip Lee has resigned from the government to speak out against the government's policy on Brexit.

The "meaningful vote" will be the first major test after the House of Lords introduced 15 changes to the bill, trying to reshape the government's approach to Brexit by encouraging lawmakers to press for the closest possible ties.

It was not as simple on Tuesday, when May was forced to blunt another rebellion in parliament by offering a compromise that could hand lawmakers more control over Brexit.

Losing the vote in the Commons would have spelt serious trouble for Mrs May, whose position as prime minister was weakened previous year when she lost her parliamentary majority after calling a general election.

Former home secretary Amber Rudd, a leading Remain supporter, and ex-party leader Iain Duncan Smith, a long-standing Brexiteer, warned defeat could lead to the fall of the Government.

Ministers and other lawmakers have been told to make sure they will be in parliament for the votes.
