Brexit defeat for United Kingdom government

Nevertheless, they insist parliament can not be allowed to overturn Brexit or tie the government's hand is negotiations.

"Parliament must be given a meaningful vote on all possible outcomes of Brexit - and this must be guaranteed in writing".

Grieve was criticised in some newspapers over the weekend when he suggested he could "collapse the government" and said he woke up in a cold sweat thinking about it.

Andrew Mitchell, the former Conservative Party Chief Whip, speaks to former Attorney General Dominic Grieve, as an anti-Brexit protester stands near them opposite the Houses of Parliament in London, Britain, May 10, 2018.

It will mean a new cliffhanger when MPs vote on Wednesday to decide how much of a say the British Parliament should have on a Brexit deal.

"I shall lobby the prime minister and the leader of the House Andrea Leadsom for the government to give us time to get it through", he said. Wednesday's votes will be crucial for May's attempts to resist a "meaningful vote" plan that is seen as a step towards a softer Brexit - an outcome that would mean closer ties to the European Union on issues such as customs and regulations. While this was not unexpected, it puts extra pressure on Theresa May to win over Remainers who she had upset after appearing to backtrack on an agreement on the same issue.

He said: "One of the reasons I've supported [this amendment] is precisely to avoid a situation where the government would immediately collapse", he said.

A statement will then be given in the House of Commons on what course the government should take in the event of a no deal.

Last week, Conservative backbenchers that do not agree with the "no deal is better than a bad deal" position reached a compromise with the government. last week The UK prime minister promised a "meaningful vote", in the event there was no deal with the European Union by November 2018.

She insisted she had been listening to the concerns of critics but said the legislation must not restrict her freedom in talks with Brussels.

"And part of that has got to be where, if Michel Barnier tries to give us a very bad deal, that she can turn around and say "no, I'd rather not do that".

"We can not let Parliament tie the Government's hands", she said at an event in Omagh, Co Tyrone.

They want Parliament to be given more powers if no deal is agreed, or if the agreement May makes with Brussels is deemed unacceptable by MPs.

He added: "The Government's amendment not only fails to deliver the promised meaningful vote".

However, the motion will be unamendable, which means MPs won't be able to insert a requirement for Mrs May to renegotiate her Brexit deal, extend the transition phase or revoke our withdrawal under Article 50. The decision by the upper chamber, in effect, rejects a government-backed proposal on a final brexit deal.
