May's Brexit Bill Returns: A Guide to the Main Voting Battles
14 June, 2018, 20:52
Prior to the votes, the government suffered its first ministerial resignation over Brexit as Phillip Lee quit the Ministry of Justice so he could speak out freely.
The most contentious was the bid to give Parliament the power to tell the government what to do if the Brexit deal was voted down or no agreement was reached.
Parliament voted 325 to 298 in favor of rejecting a House of Lords amendment to require ministers to report on their efforts in negotiations to secure a customs union.
Earlier, May appeared to have also stemmed a rebellion on Wednesday over her commitment to leaving the EU's customs union which will transform Britain's trading relationships for decades to come.
The government averted defeat Tuesday by promising that Parliament would get more say over the U.K. -EU divorce deal.
"Whatever we do, we're not going to reverse that [decision to leave the EU]", he said. I'm absolutely a solid Brexiteer and if there was a referendum now I would campaign to leave.

The resignation, announced live on stage during a speech in London, heaped pressure on the PM just hours before she faces a series of knife-edge votes on the EU Withdrawal Bill later.
The shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer, said: "The government's amendment is simply not good enough".
"If, in the future, I am to look my children in the eye and honestly say that I did my best for them I can not, in all good conscience, support how our country's current exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered", said Dr Lee.
Downing Street insisted today it will not accept a compromise tabled by former Cabinet minister Dominic Grieve, which would force the government to come up with a new strategy in the event of the Brexit deal being rejected, and put that to MPs again for approval.
The Labour leader left the prime minister shooting what some commentators described as a "death stare" - while Boris Johnson giggled and smirked.
Remain-supporting Conservative Anna Soubry, one of the MPs who met Mrs May on Tuesday, said she trusted Mrs May to "honour the undertaking she gave".
The EU (Withdrawal) Bill, coming back down to the Commons from the unelected Lords, is the draft law that would set the legal framework for Brexit.
"The question is how do we take some sensible steps to anticipate that happening and try to make sure that there is a coherent process for dealing with it".
The government was putting a combative spin on the concessions Tuesday evening: "The Brexit Secretary has set out three tests that any new amendment has to meet - not undermining the negotiations, not changing the constitutional role of Parliament and Government in negotiating global treaties, and respecting the referendum result", a spokesperson for the Brexit department said in a statement.
"We will wait and see the details of this concession and will hold ministers to account to ensure it lives up to the promises they have made to Parliament".
Theresa May is trying to press ahead with the legislation needed to enact Brexit but, in a hung parliament, she must strike a delicate balance between rebels on both wings of her parliamentary party.
It followed a strained parliamentary session, where the deep divisions opened up by Britain's vote to leave the European Union in 2016 were on display, with lawmakers who oppose the government saying they had received death threats or been called traitors.
