Welsh MPs quit Labour roles to defy Corbyn in Brexit vote

Brexit news: Jeremy Corbyn faces revolt as five Labour MPs resign | Daily Star EU Withdrawal Bill debate: Day 1

She said: "I can not countenance Parliament being able to overturn the will of the British people: Parliament gave the decision to the British people, the British people voted to leave the European Union and as Prime Minister I'm determined to deliver that".

MPs voted to defeat amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill which were debated in the House of Commons, including amendments which sought to keep Britain in the single market and a customs union with the EU.

The EU (Withdrawal) Bill, coming back down to the Commons from the unelected Lords, is the draft law that would set the legal framework for Brexit.

The votes came after two days of bruising debate on the government's key piece of Brexit legislation - the European Union Withdrawal Bill, meant to disentangle Britain from the 28-nation bloc after four decades of membership.

The amendment was one of 15 that peers had made to the bill as it made a bruising passage through the upper chamber.

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

"We must think about the message parliament will send to the European Union this week", May told MPs in her center-right Conservative Party late Monday.

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

Asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme what would happen under Government plans if MPs voted against the deal eventually secured by Mrs May, Mr Davis said: "If they throw it out, well, they throw it out".

Two of the putative rebels, Anna Soubry and Heidi Allen, quickly said that did not match their recollection of what had been promised, with Soubry urging the government to "sort it please".

Prior to the votes, the government suffered its first ministerial resignation over Brexit as Phillip Lee quit the Ministry of Justice so he could speak out freely.

He confirmed that ministers will seek to overturn 14 amendments which he said would undermine the objective of the Bill and fail to respect the result of the 2016 referendum.

The Lords passed an amendment stating that Brexit can not go ahead until a minister has presented a report setting out what the United Kingdom has done to try to negotiate continued customs union membership.

Details of the government's commitment will have to be formalized next week in a new amendment to the bill.

This amendment stops the Government changing any European Union law relating to the environment, consumers and employment without putting it before MPs first.

The threat of catastrophic defeat for Mrs May seemed to have receded after Tory rebels agreed to put off a showdown over whether Britain should stay in a customs union with the EU.

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.

May's minority Conservative government relies on the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party for a slender working majority in the 650-member Commons.

Dr Lee said he could not "look his children in the eye" and support the way Brexit is "currently being delivered".

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

A similar warning features on the front of the Daily Express, which runs with the headline: "Ignore the will of the people at your peril".

One former minister who was present at Tuesday's meeting with Mrs May, Stephen Hammond, said he "trusts entirely" the promises made by the PM.

Ukip leader Gerard Batten said: "The only "meaningful vote" was the verdict of the people in referendum of June 23 2016".

Ministers and other lawmakers have been told to make sure they will be in parliament for the votes.
