May survives fresh Brexit vote but rebels up the pressure

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street to attend the weekly session of PMQs at parliament in London, Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

But Grieve says these are the circumstances he wants to avoid: a deal voted down with weeks to go until Britain leaves the European Union, the prime minister resigning, and the governing party unable to agree what its policy is.

In a statement, Jeremy Corbyn said he understood the "difficulties" facing MPs "representing constituencies which voted strongly for Leave or Remain" on the issue of the EEA.

"We would like to see further concessions on the amendment on the customs union because it is just a very sensible amendment that says keep it on the table, don't completely rule it out", she told the BBC.

In the event, Dr Lee abstained on the crucial vote, saying he was "delighted" that the Government had agreed to introduce an amendment giving Parliament "the voice I always wanted it to have in the Brexit process".

"When the Government is able to set out an achievable, clearly defined path, one that has been properly considered, whose implications have been foreseen, and that is rooted in reality and evidence, not dreams and dogma, it should go to the people, once again, to seek their confirmation", he wrote.

Buckland indicated the government would discuss the possibility of adopting Grieve's push for ministers to secure parliamentary approval for their Brexit plans if they fail to negotiate a deal with the EU.

Nick Ferrari told a Conservative "rebel" that her job is to get on with delivering the Brexit at the people voted for.

It emerged last night - after much horse-trading around Westminster - that the government would accept parts A and B of Grieve's amendments.

Ahead of the crucial votes, Brexit Secretary David Davis warned MPs that defeat would undermine the UK's negotiating stance in Brussels.

Mr Burt said that he had "absolutely no intention" of resigning over Brexit.

Earlier this year, Lee had called on the government to release its economic impact assessments of Brexit and suggesting the government change tack in talks with the EU.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders planning to leave White House
CBS News , however, reported Sanders had not responded to repeated requests for comment before its story was published. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has responded to reports she plans to leave the White House.

But No10 said Dr Lee had been spoken to by chief whip Julian Smith and "reminded it is better to express such views in private in future". The government has also put down some amendments aimed at uniting the party around a compromise.

Rebels have said they will challenge May's plans to leave the customs union during votes on other bills, on trade and customs, which will be brought back to the house some time before July 24.

As the government tries to draft a legislative amendment on whether Parliament should get a veto over the government's Brexit deal, and what powers it should have after that, one Tory lawmaker is arguing the question is irrelevant.

The Lords amendment overturned on Tuesday would have given parliament the power to decide whether to leave the European Union if no deal is reached, keep negotiating - or stay in the bloc.

Leading rebel Dominic Grieve said he hoped a compromise would be found, but if not, "this isn't the end of the matter".

The Prime Minister was speaking as she confirmed that the Government will table a new amendment to her flagship EU Withdrawal Bill, setting out in more detail the terms of the "meaningful vote" promised to MPs on the final Brexit deal. May warned her MPs: "The message we send to the country through our votes this week is important".
