Meaningful vote rejected: how key MPs voted on the Brexit amendment

"It is, however, irresponsible to proceed as we are".

The SNP doesn't have any Lords because of an ideological disagreement with the concept of an unelected upper house - but it does have plenty of MPs in the Commons.

He called for Brexit, now set for March 2019, to be delayed and for the public to get a second referendum on the terms of any exit deal.

But Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, a leading Brexit backer, said the concessions could "come back to haunt" the government if they amounted to a veto over the terms of the UK's departure.

But ministers now know that a narrow but decisive Commons majority can be assembled against them on critical Brexit issues, and that its next outing could well be on a more substantive vote on a customs union.

This included the House of Commons having to approve any government action in Brexit talks if it has not reached an exit deal with the European Union by the end of November.

The Bill will return to the Lords on June 18, kicking off a process of "parliamentary ping-pong" which sees it bounce from House to House until agreement is reached.

Brexit minister David Davis told parliament if it rejected the government's compromise on the "meaningful vote" and backed the House of Lords amendment: "What it actually amounts to is an unconstitutional shift which risks undermining our negotiation with the European Union".

"It claims that it's to prevent no deal or a bad deal and give Parliament a meaningful vote and a say on that".

That's where Alderweireld comes in despite not featuring for the London club often last season due to injury. The deal for the Brazil global should be confirmed within the next week.

"This needs to be resolved", Andrew Bridgen, a pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker, told Reuters.

Parliament will vote Tuesday on a key piece of legislation, the E.U. Withdrawal bill, that would transfer European Union laws now on British books into British law after Brexit. The strength of this commitment is yet to be seen in writing - and the Brexit department is still insisting it has not given up control of the negotiations - but the anti-Brexit rebels showed they have the numbers to force a defeat should the government renege on its pledge.

Britain's highest-selling tabloid, The Sun, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, addressed lawmakers directly on its front page, saying they faced a choice between "Great Britain or Great Betrayal".

In a tense atmosphere where it was not clear which way the vote would go, the government secured its victory only after offering concessions to one of the leaders of a group of Conservative lawmakers who were threatening to vote against May.

In fact, her party is far from united.

"That was the decision of the British people. and whatever we do, we're not going to reverse that", he told the BBC. But May is facing a potential rebellion from some Conservative lawmakers who want to retain close ties with the bloc after the United Kingdom leaves in March 2019.

Mrs May's divided Cabinet has yet to settle on what sort of customs deal Britain should have with the European Union or how it will deal with the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

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. The text needs to honor her pledge to pro-EU Tories that she'll take account of their concerns over the possibility of leaving the bloc without a deal.
