EU Withdrawal Bill debate: Day 1

A statement from the Department for Exiting the European Union on Tuesday said David Davis had set three tests for any new amendment: not undermining the negotiations; not changing the constitutional role of parliament and government in negotiating worldwide treaties; and respecting the referendum result.

The concession came after intensive horse-trading on the floor of the House of Commons, with chief whip Julian Smith shuttling between Tory backbenchers during debate on Lords amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill.

The European Union Withdrawal Bill, a complex piece of legislation meant to disentangle Britain from four decades of EU rules and regulations, has had a rocky ride through Parliament.

Theresa May, in Quebec for the G7 summit, denounced the unelected peers who passed the amendments, accusing them of going far beyond their role as a revising chamber.

But he said it was "not acceptable" for MPs to try to dictate the Government's response in the case that no deal is reached with the EU.

"The government can not demonstrate the flexibility necessary for a successful deal if its hands are tied midway through that process", Davis said.

If confirmed, the move represents a dramatic climbdown from Mrs May's original plan to offer MPs a "take it or leave it" vote to accept the withdrawal agreement or leave the European Union without a deal.

THERESA MAY has been dealt a significant blow just hours ahead of a crunch Brexit vote following the shock resignation of Phillip Lee.

Potential rebels fell into line after Mr Buckland said ministers were ready to "engage positively" with their concerns before the Bill returns to the Upper House next Monday.

The Conservatives said the resignations showed that Mr Corbyn "can't lead his own party let alone our country through complex Brexit negotiations", while Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable accused him of being "completely defunct as an Opposition Leader". Pro-Brexit members of the government want to be able to play the "no deal" card, but the House of Commons, where pro-EU voices are stronger, would nearly certainly reject the idea.

The Brexit Department said in a statement that it would look for compromise, but would not agree to lawmakers "binding the government's hands" in negotiations.

"I have agreed this morning with the Brexit Secretary that we will bring forward an amendment in the Lords".

It has been two years since Britain voted by 52-48 percent to exit the European Union, and there are eight months until the due to leave the bloc on March 29, 2019.

A paper laying out the U.K. government position, due to be published this month, has been delayed because the Cabinet can not agree on a united stance.

In fact, her party is far from united over the decision to leave the EU.

No. There will be plenty more chances for upsets as separate Bills on customs and trade come before MPs next month, followed by legislation on future immigration rules later in the year and a Withdrawal Agreement and Implementation Bill once the final Brexit deal is struck.

Pro-Brexit tabloid the Sun warned lawmakers on Tuesday's front page that they had a choice: "Great Britain or great betrayal".

The Daily Express featured the British flag as its front page with the headline: "Ignore the will of the people at your peril".

The fall-out from Britain's referendum vote in 2016 to leave the European Union has reshaped politics, deepening divisions within its main parties and raising tensions between its four nations - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

"We will wait and see the details of this concession and will hold ministers to account to ensure it lives up to the promises they have made to Parliament".

"We can not settle for this", said Corbyn in a Facebook post.
