May faces another day of Brexit compromise in parliament

They subsequently warned they will not be easily bought off, while Tory Brexiteers urged ministers not to concede any ground.

During a frantic day of discussions between ministers and Conservative backbenchers, potential rebels were eventually persuaded to back down when Solicitor General Robert Buckland told MPs that ministers were willing to "engage positively" with their concerns.

First, "MPs voted to reverse the Lords amendment removing the "exit day" from the bill by 326 votes to 301 - a majority of 25".

Mr Grieve withdrew his own amendment, which would have given MPs powers to dictate what the Government should do if no acceptable agreement is reached by February 2019.

"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". Mr Grieve's proposal will now be added to the legislation.

And what if the Brexiters force May to renege on her putative pledge to the Remainer rebels?

"We will be talking to the government immediately after this in order to find a common way forward. 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.

While promising "further discussions", he said he was concerned that empowering Parliament to "instruct" ministers what to do in the event of no deal would leave the United Kingdom in "very rocky constitutional territory". "I can not support the government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and parliamentary sovereignty", he said.

Earlier May suffered a setback when junior justice minister Phillip Lee, who has always been critical of Brexit strategy, resigned and said he would vote against the government.

In an email to Newsday, Hart wrote: "The best horse won. but Noble Indy got a raw deal in how the race was run". "I'm not. There is also, of course, the risk of defeat, which takes away some of the invincibility of a Triple Crown victor .

This assurance was enough to convince Tory rebels to vote with the government.

Phillip Lee, who resigned this morning, gave an impassioned speech from the "naughty corner" on the backbenches - flanked by Remainers including Bob Neill, Nicky Morgan, receiving congratulations for his decision by Soubry and Sarah Wollaston.

The current "meaningful vote" offered by the Government allows MPs to accept or reject the Brexit deal, but the proposed change would see MPs take control of the negotiation aims.

"She said that anything which undermines the government at home would make the negotiations with the European Union more hard".

The Government had earlier tabled a compromise on Amendment 19, promising that if MPs were to vote no, a minister would come back to the Commons within 28 days to say what would happen next.

The final vote, as outlined in Grieve third point, would be different as the government would then have to follow any direction given by the Commons. "That's what this House voted on Article 50".

Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman had earlier indicated he was not sure how he would vote on the question of whether parliament should get a final say on the Brexit deal.

LONDON - Theresa May has narrowly avoided a humiliating parliamentary defeat on Brexit after making a major concession to Conservative rebels which could hand MPs an effective veto on her Brexit deal.
