Tense debate in House of Commons on Brexit vote

During a tense debate in the House of Commons, Theresa May’s government managed to defeat amendments proposed by the House of Lords which would tighten the UK government’s hands on the package under negotiation with the European Union for the country’s exit from the EU.

British negotiator, David Davies, warned at the beginning of the debate that if the amendments and proposals are approved, they will weaken his position in the negotiations. With the amendments, Parliament would have had the right to provide a direction to the British Government if the EU agreement bill was not acceptable to deputies.

Before the debate, Prime Minister May lost a cabinet member with the resignation of Justice Parliamentary Secretary, Philip Lee. He stated that he cannot form part of the government because he disagrees with the way that the Brexit process is developing.
