MPs will get vote on final Brexit deal before European Parliament

Brexit Minister David Jones said the final agreement will require approval from both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, and that votes will take place before European Parliament rubber stamps it.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is also expected to face rebellion again after ordering his MPs to back the passage of the bill.

Brexit already has a lot to answer for - and now there's another negative outcome to add to the list: higher mobile phone data charges when we travel in the EU.

Downing Street officials indicated that the Prime Minister was opposed to any amendment of the EU Bill.

Some Tories have threatened to join forces with opposition MPs over the issue during the committee stage of the EU (Notification Of Withdrawal) Bill in the Commons because they were anxious about quitting the EU without an agreement, with potentially serious consequences for the economy.

"The Government's so-called "concession" falls short of giving Parliament a meaningful vote", Labour MP Chris Leslie said.

Tories who wanted to remain in the European Union want assurances that Parliament will get a vote on the "endgame" if negotiations with other member states collapse without a deal.

"This eleventh-hour concession is therefore welcome, but it needs to be firmed up as the Bill progresses through both Houses".

"But, as I have said before, European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom make a vital contribution to our economy and our society, and without them we would be poorer and our public services weaker".

Lawmakers (MPs) reacted angrily when it emerged they would not be able to force the government back to the negotiating table.

Would-be rebel Tory MPs have been warned by Theresa May they will be going against the democratic will of the British people if they side with the opposition to put constraints on the Government in the Brexit Bill.

The UK Supreme Court has already ruled the British government does not have to consult the devolved administrations before it starts the formal Brexit process.

Nicky Morgan, the former education secretary, was among those to abstain, sitting resolutely on the government benches, next to a whip trying to persuade her to vote.
