The Telegraph – Brexit Bulletin

Good afternoon.

The Lords have been discussing amendments to the Brexit Bill this afternoon, after approving one about European migrants last week. The Government’s problems may not be over. Peers rejected the Liberal Democrats’ attempt to set in law a requirement that there would have to be a second referendum, but another proposal may soon be approved.

This amendment would give the Lords and the Commons a “meaningful” vote on the Brexit deal and would give them the chance to stop Mrs May from walking away from the EU without a deal, a proposal which has concerned ministers. Yesterday the Prime Minister warned that Conservative peers who force the Government into giving Parliament a meaningful vote on Brexit will “incentivise” the European Union to offer Britain a “bad deal”.

If they succeed, the Brexit Bill’s problems will not end on returning to the House of Commons. More than 20 MPs, led by former ministers Nicky Morgan and Anna Soubry, will be prepared to defy the Government and back the early Parliamentary vote. It may all be avoided if the Lords rejects the amendment though. You can follow the debate on our liveblog, and know the result of the vote as soon as it is announced (which should be imminent).

No matter what happens, the Lords will hope to have had a meaningful debate this afternoon.
