Theresa May scrambles to defuse Tory Remainer mutiny over Brexit Bill

Remain rebels tonight rejected Theresa May’s ‘sneaky’ attempt at a compromise over a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal.

The Government tabled a new draft moments before the 5pm deadline but failed to secure the support of ringleaders Dominic Grieve and Anna Soubry.

Rebel Sarah Wollaston branded Mrs May’s draft ‘sneaky’ because a last minute change meant the proposed ‘meaningful vote’ would not be amendable by MPs.

Ms Soubry branded the turnaround ‘unforgivable’ and said the group of rebels – thought to number around 15 – feel ‘badly let down’ by Mrs May following her personal assurances on Tuesday night.
