LIVE Parliament Over EU Withdrawal Bill – rebel revolt. Vote taken at about 19:00. The Prime Minister lost. 

The Government has suffered a defeat on amendment on meaningful vote on EU Bill.

Ayes to the right – 309.  No’s to the left – 305.  The rebels beat Theresa May.

The amendment in the name of Dominic Grieve would require the final deal with the EU to be approved by statute passed by Parliament.

The amendment will become part of the bill, and MPs move to another vote.

The government has no majority in the Commons and is vulnerable to a revolt by its MPs.

Ahead of the vote, Mr Davis wrote to all Conservative members on Wednesday morning promising “a meaningful vote” on Brexit.

He said there will be a vote in Parliament “as soon as possible” after an agreement with the EU is reached, adding: “Our entire approach to the bill has been to listen to MPs.”

This is bound to bring up the subject of Brexit. More clashes on both sides. So, lots of noise for about 30-40 minutes.

PMQs

Prime Minister’s Question Time, also referred to as PMQs, takes place every Wednesday that the House of Commons is sitting and gives MPs the chance to put questions to the Prime Minister.

Because it is so popular, free tickets are necessary to ensure entrance to watch Prime Minister’s Questions. These are available to UK residents who contact their MP to request them in advance. It is good to watch from the balcony. Ideal spot.
