Don’t tie our hands in Brexit negotiations, British government tells parliament

13 June 2018, 11:21 | Glen Norman

Outside parliament, around 60 protesters called on parliament to stop Brexit, saying they were cheated by the 2016 campaign to leave the European Union which they suspected had been influenced by Moscow.

She could be heard being cheered from outside the room in parliament where lawmakers from both sides of the debate, including some of her ministers, gathered on the eve of the votes.

Ministers saw off a move to give MPs the decisive say on what happens over Brexit if they do not agree with the deal negotiated by the United Kingdom government.

Some lawmakers tried to shout him down and accused the government of wanting too much power.

But just an hour before the vote, due at around 1500 GMT, the government sought to compromise with senior pro-EU Conservative lawmaker Dominic Grieve, who had put forward his own amendment, which increased the risk of a government defeat.

These were the words of a minister expecting to win the vote.

Exercises with South Korea cover a range of eventualities, including drills with nuclear-capable bombers. Trump has already made by ending military exercises in South Korea and granting Mr.

Crucially, ministers have conceded that if MPs vote down the Withdrawal Agreement with Brussels, that will not result in the United Kingdom crashing out of the European Union with no deal - a scenario that few MPs would countenance because of the significant economic damage it would entail.

But after meeting Mrs May he told this paper: "I've been to see the prime minister and received important undertakings and chose to vote to give the prime minister the authority and freedom to negotiate the best deal she can".

"First, we must never do anything that undermines the Government's negotiating position or encourages delays in the negotiations", Mr Davis said.

Buckland indicated the government would look into 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.

But these putative pledges by the PM are inconsistent with Tuesday night's statement by Davis's officials that any new amendment relating to the power of MPs to accept or reject a Brexit deal must not restrict her negotiating freedom - or restrict her ability to sign whatever treaty with the European Union she would like.

Lee, who voted for Britain to remain in the E.U.in the 2016 referendum, said in a statement he was "incredibly sad" to resign but did so in order to vote against the government's position on a key amendment to the bill. But a government official said they had just agreed to open talks on the basis of the rebel amendment.

May wins Brexit vote, avoids rebellion
The bill has also become of the focus of several attempts by MPs and peers to change parts of the government's approach to Brexit. Her fellow Conservative backbencher Stephen Hammond said: "Parliament must be able to have its say in a "no deal" situation".

Following a meeting with Theresa May, Tory MPs said they had been promised "input" into what the government would do if the United Kingdom faced a no-deal scenario.

"Thirdly, we must under all circumstances respect the result of the referendum".

Theresa May has suffered a ministerial resignation ahead of crunch Commons votes on Brexit, with Phillip Lee hitting out at the Government's "irresponsible" approach.

The House of Lords has inserted 15 amendments to soften the terms of Britain's departure.

Earlier, May appeared to have also stemmed a rebellion on Wednesday over her commitment to leaving the EU's customs union which will transform Britain's trading relationships for decades to come. After losing her party's majority in parliament at an ill-judged election past year, she now relies on the support of a small Northern Irish party and the distance between victory and defeat is narrow.

Matthew Pennycook, one of the opposition Labour Party's Brexit policy team, urged lawmakers to vote to hand parliament more powers.
