Brexit

SLAM DUNK: Unelected Lords DEFEATED in Commons as Gov’t win ELEVEN key Brexit votes

THE GOVERNMENT has avoided a major defeat on its Brexit bill by 324 votes to 298 after a late concession.

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 UK government.

The concession offered by ministers is believed to include offering a new Parliamentary motion if the Brexit deal is voted down by MPs and peers.

Two Tory MPs – Ken Clarke and Anna Soubry – voted against the government.

Tuesday’s Commons debate marked the start of the government’s attempts to undo most of the changes to its EU Withdrawal Bill that were put forward by the House of Lords.

The most contentious was the bid to give Parliament the power to tell the government what to do if the Brexit deal was voted down or no agreement was reached.

Hurrah for those who are willing to listen to the will of the people!
