United Kingdom government wins key Brexit parliamentary battle
13 June, 2018, 01:12 | Author: Irene Delgado
Speaking to a packed meeting of Tory MPs - including Chancellor Philip Hammond, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Environment Secretary Michael Gove - May said: "We must think about the message Parliament will send to the European Union this week".
One of the key points of difference between the Prime Minister and the rebels is a Lords amendment which states the Government must seek to negotiate a customs union with the EU.
The concession means MPs could be given power to prevent Britain leaving the European Union without a deal.
The motion to reject the Lords amendment, which would have given MPs control over the government's negotiation strategy and the final exit deal, therefore passed by 324 votes to 298 - a majority of 26 votes.
Brexit secretary David Davis has made a last-ditch attempt to persuade would-be Tory rebels not to vote against the government on today's amendments, saying the European Union referendum result was irreversible.
Five Labour MPs also rebelled by voting in favour of disagreeing with the Lords amendment: Ronnie Campbell, Frank Field, Kate Hoey, John Mann and Graham Stringer.
The frontpages of Leave-backing British newspapers said accepting the amendments would betray the 52% who backed Brexit in the seismic 2016 referendum.
The E.U. (Withdrawal) Bill is the draft law that would set the legal framework for Brexit and Ms. If and when agreement can be reached, the new amendment will be introduced in the House of Lords, when the bill returns there in the next stage of its passage through parliament.
