Government compromise on 'meaningful vote' avoids Brexit defeat

"If, in the future, I am to look my children in the eye and honestly say that I did my best for them I can not, in all good conscience, support how our country's current exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered", he said.

They also voted to disagree with Lords amendment 37, which was part of an attempt to remove the exit day from the Bill and allow the Commons to rethink its approach.

The victory was Pyrrhic, as the government's earlier climbdown all but ensures MPs will have an increased say on the terms of any deal.

The Lib Dems, who identify strongly as an anti-Brexit party to the point of pushing for a second referendum and running by-elections in Remain-friendly seats on that platform, opposed the Government.

The concession allowed the government to defeat a Lords amendment calling for parliament to have "a meaningful vote" on any eventual Brexit deal by 324 votes to 298.

The Prime Minister met pro-EU Tories in her private room in the Commons moments before the crucial vote to hear their demands for a truly meaningful vote on the final deal.

She said the global community was at the beginning of a very long process: "The detail is still to be worked through". The news comes after the pair made history with a meeting in Singapore to try and bring an end to their differences.

"The government have conceded that this is necessary and I expect to see a new amendment to cover this situation soon". "And I can not bring myself to vote for it in the bastion of liberty, freedom and human rights that is our Parliament".

"If Brexit is worth doing, then it is certainly worth doing well; regardless of how long that takes", he said.

Lee said "the people, economy and culture of my constituency will be affected negatively" by Britain's European Union departure, and it is "irresponsible to proceed as we are". "I am trying to negotiate the best deal for Britain".

Former Attorney General Dominic Grieve had been a repeat rebel in previous debates, but he voted with the government after "personal assurances" from Theresa May - because he is "quite satisfied" MPs will end up with a meaningful vote anyway.

May's decision to leave the customs union, which sets tariffs for goods imported into the EU, has also been criticised for raising the prospect of a "hard" border on the island of Ireland, which some fear could reignite sectarian violence.

"The Brexit secretary has set out three tests that any new amendment has to meet - not undermining the negotiations, not changing the constitutional role of parliament and government in negotiating global treaties, and respecting the referendum result".

Trump and Trudeau blame each other for spat at G7 summit
The back-and-forth between Trump and Trudeau highlights the growing tensions between the USA and some the country's closest allies.

The House of Commons is deciding whether to reject changes made to the EU Withdrawal Bill by the House of Lords in a two-day debate taking place today and tomorrow.

He confirmed that ministers will seek to overturn 14 amendments which he said would undermine the objective of the Bill and fail to respect the result of the 2016 referendum. "We will have to go away, think about it and come back and make a statement". He said he would vote against the prime minister.

"Grieve's amendment puts that right and in a way Govt could and should accept it". But there is going to be no binary choice of the deal on the table or no deal, with Parliament bypassed.

Addressing Conservative backbenchers in Westminster on Monday evening, the Prime Minister warned if a series of Lords amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill are approved by MPs, it will send the wrong message to Brussels. Junior Minister quit the government so he could back the veto proposal.

However, the compromise is only likely to delay a full-blown showdown on the customs union until trade legislation returns to the Commons in July.
