Brexit law faces crucial Commons vote

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

In Westminster, a government fearing defeat in the Commons made concessions to rebel Tory MPs to give the house more of a veto than it's ever had over Brexit negotiations.

Remain-supporting Dr Lee quit as justice minister live on stage during a speech in London, saying he could not support "how our country's exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered".

"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", she said.

What does his resignation mean for the government?

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street in London, Britain, June 12, 2018.

Dr Lee joins the back benches and says he will support an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill which is being debated and voted on in the House of Commons.

In extraordinary scenes in the House of Commons, May was understood to have seen more than a dozen Tory rebels in her office minutes before voting started, during which she gave them a personal assurance that she would agree to the broad thrust of their proposals and amend the bill in the Lords.

Then another Spygate rejection burst forth from GOP Representative Tom Rooney , who sits on the House Intelligence Committee. The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the USA election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said.


"That term, Mr Speaker, is actually specifically defined in the Belfast Agreement and I've no doubt that government ministers will have read the Belfast Agreement in its entirety", she said.

Tory rebels claimed that the government had agreed to specific proposals from leading backbench remainer Grieve to address concerns over what would happen if parliament rejected the final Brexit deal, or talks with the European Union were to break down.

"I think that's where a lot of the parliamentary party are". When the government realised it could be defeated solicitor general Robert Buckland confirmed to a packed chamber there was "much merit" in Grieve's amendment adding "the government is willing to engage positively".

Details of the government's commitment will have to be formalised next week in a new amendment to the bill. Labour will only vote for a final Brexit deal if it delivers a strong relationship with the Single Market based on full tariff-free access and ensures no loss of rights and standards.

"It has got to be done in good faith, because without that, we will face a situation where in fact, firstly, the other place will put it back in and secondly the goodwill will be gone when it comes back to this house", leading rebel Dominic Grieve told lawmakers.

He also warned any attempt by so-called hard Brexiteers to "overthrow" Mrs May would be "completely mad".

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.
