United Kingdom minister offers parliament new vote on any Brexit deal

SURVIVOR Britain’s foreign secretary Boris Johnson has repeatedly challenged Theresa May on major economic and policy issues

"Davis has just confirmed his new European Union withdrawal bill for the final agreement does not preclude crashing out without a deal or meaningful vote - Parliament would effectively be sidelined which makes a mockery of parliamentary sovereignty".

Even if time is on the government's side, there are also so many different parties involved in achieving the final deal that it seems unlikely Parliament could just keep sending Davis back to Brussels until he got is just right.

There are fears that pro-EU Tories are willing to rebel on the Withdrawal Bill in order to ensure a meaningful vote on the Brexit deal.

This means MPs will debate the final deal and then vote on whether to either accept or reject it.

"Clearly this is an attempt to see off amendments that go much further than David Davis on a "meaningful vote" - it is vital the EU Withdrawal Bill is amended to provide for a proper not a fake meaningful vote before any exit day. Parliament must have a say on that withdrawal agreement before we are thrown over the cliff edge".

May's blueprint for Britain's exit from the European Union faces a crucial test starting on Tuesday, when lawmakers will debate the European Union withdrawal bill that she says is crucial to give companies confidence that the rules will not change after Brexit. Almost 200 amendments have been tabled for the Bill.

Schumer said, "They actually hurt middle-class people because they need to give those big breaks for the wealthiest". The Congressional Budget Office did estimate this could provide $338 billion in the next 10 years.

"This confirms that the major policy set out in the withdrawal agreement will be directly implemented into United Kingdom law as primary legislation, not by secondary legislation under the withdrawal bill". However, it would put Prime Minister Theresa May under pressure to request an extension to negotiations.

"This is a significant climbdown from a weak government on the verge of defeat", Starmer said.

Conservative backbenchers previously warned they were ready to support an amendment demanding the UK's divorce deal is approved by an Act of Parliament. With less than 24 hours before they had to defend their flawed bill to parliament they have finally backed down.

Meanwhile, former Tory constitution minister John Penrose welcomed the Government's stronger pledge on a parliamentary vote, but expressed continuing concerns over the use of so-called "Henry VIII powers" as provided by the EU Withdrawal Bill.

Opponents of Brexit said that Davis hadn't gone far enough.
