Prime Minister hit by dramatic resignation as MPs debate Brexit

They reassured anti-Brexit MPs that the government would accept some of their core demands to give parliament a meaningful say on the terms of Britain's European Union divorce, including - potentially - a new deadline for a deal to be agreed with Brussels that could make it hard for the government.

However, Devon Tory Sarah Wollaston signalled that she would back Mr Grieve's amendment. "We have to come back together and we have to do the right thing". And she has given us that, and those discussions on how we are going to build on the amendment that has been approved by the House of Commons will start today.

May also told them she would try to capture another of their concerns, as enshrined in Grieve's amendment to the EU Withdrawal bill - which would much more explicitly give MPs the whip hand in Brexit talks, if May has still not done a deal with the EU by February next year.

One Twitter user wrote: "Remainers are out in force telling us how the MP's have "taken back control".

Nicky Morgan has been an outspoken critic of Brexit, but she backed the government following its concessions.

In the end MPs voted by 324 to 298 to reject the House of Lords proposal, with only two Tories voting against the government.

She said: "We don't feel that was a meaningless promise at all". Its Lords were instrumental in bringing about some of the amendments that have been sent back to the Commons.

'I think that was a very helpful suggestion that will have to be considered, ' he added.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer commented: "This vote was about ensuring parliament was given a proper role in the Brexit negotiations and that we avoid a no deal situation, which is becoming more likely with the divisions at the heart of this government".

Opening debate on the flagship EU Withdrawal Bill in the House of Commons, Mr Davis warned that the "cumulative effect" of a series of Lords amendments would "make it impossible to deliver the smooth and orderly exit we want".

"That's the important difference here".

"A vote between bad and worse is not a meaningful vote".

"And the goal of this is to protect us from crashing out with no deal on a complete cliff edge and all the chaos that would ensue which we believe would be very harmful not just for the economy but for things that really matter to people in their everyday lives".

MPs will hold further votes on the EU Withdrawal Bill on Wednesday, including a House of Lords demand for the United Kingdom to remain in the EU's single market.

The Prime Minister is now expected to get through the latest round of crunch Brexit votes unscathed, with a potentially explosive clash over the customs union on Wednesday already defused by a compromise amendment.

Facing the prospect of losing a vote on a crucial amendment to the government's flagship Brexit legislation - which was created to empower parliament to vote down the final deal without risking a "no-deal" exit from the bloc - ministers intervened with a concession at the 11th hour even as MPs were wrapping up debate on the controversial measure.
