David Davis says parliament vote can not reverse Brexit

Theresa May begs Tory MPs to stop squabbling as crucial Brexit vote nears

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

The government won the first set of votes Tuesday, but looked set to face defeat on the issue of whether Parliament should have a "meaningful vote" on the Brexit deal.

The pound strengthened 0.3 percent against the dollar to $1.3424 after parliament voted to back the government on several amendments to the European Union withdrawal bill.

Hours before the debate began, a justice minister resigned in protest at what he called its "wish to limit" the role of parliament in shaping Brexit. Philip Lee said a choice between "bad and worse" options was not giving MPs a meaningful vote.

The "meaningful vote" is a crucial amendment passed in the House of Lords which, if passed in Commons, would have allowed Parliament to take charge of the negotiating strategy if they vote against the Government's Brexit deal in autumn.

Some lawmakers tried to shout him down and accused the government of wanting too much power.

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".

The frontpages of Leave-backing British newspapers said accepting the amendments would betray the 52% who backed Brexit in the seismic 2016 referendum.

Theresa May is facing one of the biggest tests of her leadership, with Tory rebels threatening to vote against their own party to force through amendments to the bill.

The votes of opposition lawmakers will also be important. "It enables parliament to dictate to the government their course of action in global negotiations".

However, a potential rebellion by pro-Remain Tories over their demands for a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal was only avoided after ministers agreed at the last moment to discuss a compromise.

At the very least, Grieve and his colleagues have succeeded in throwing up a series of new parliamentary barriers to a no-deal Brexit.

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

The debate, which lasted for almost three hours, was split down the usual non-partisan lines that have emerged as a result of Brexit, with the likes of Labour's Kate Hoey and John Mann saying they would back the Conservative government, while Tories including Ken Clarke and Anna Soubry spoke in favour of Grieve.

Buckland responded by telling MPs that Grieve's comments would form "a clear basis for a formal set of discussions that we can start at the earliest opportunity".

Conservative lawmaker Phillip Lee, who voted to remain in the European Union in Britain's 2016 referendum, resigned as a justice minister so he could vote against the government on a key measure.

Rebels have said they will challenge May's plans to leave the customs union with the EU during votes on other bills that will be brought back to the house some time before July 24.

Fellow MP Antoinette Sandbach rejected suggestions by leading Brexiteers in her party that this would tie the prime minister's hands in negotiations.
