MoJ loses minister Phillip Lee in Brexit row

Brexit news Theresa May Brexiteers no-confidence vote David Davis Labour

May urged her party yesterday to back her in key Brexit votes and defeat House of Lords proposals to amend her European Union withdrawal legislation.

"I am incredibly sad to have had to announce my resignation as a minister in Her Majesty's government so that I can better speak up for my constituents and country over how Brexit is now being delivered", Mr Lee said on Twitter.

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. I am confident I can get a deal that allows us to strike our own trade deals while having a border with the European Union which is as frictionless as possible. The government said it would not support that amendment.

The government says that would undermine its negotiating position in talks to leave the bloc and Brexit minister David Davis warned lawmakers the government would never allow them to reverse Brexit.

"But the message we send to the country through our votes this week is important".

Mr Buckland, who was a Remain supporter, was standing alongside junior Brexit minister and Leaver Steve Baker when he made the comments.

"We all hang together or we will hang separately", Buckland added, in a plea for unity.

She told HuffPost UK some of her colleagues needed to "take a chill pill".

Net neutrality rollback: FCC chairman Ajit Pai responds to critics
Several states including NY and Washington , have passed regulations that impose net neutrality on a local level. Senate Democrats forced a vote to restore net neutrality through the Congressional Review Act in May.

Other amendments from the Lords to be debated Tuesday include transferring the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights into United Kingdom law and one forcing the government to negotiate to remain in the European Economic Area (EEA) like Norway.

To try to ensure the government wins, ministers and other lawmakers have been told to make sure they will be in parliament for the votes.

"The main reason for my taking this decision now is the Brexit process and the Government's wish to limit Parliament's role in contributing to the final outcome in a vote that takes place today", he said.

Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston said on Monday morning she was "minded" to defy party orders and back the meaningful vote amendment.
