Pro-EU lawmaker in Britain's Conservative party: 'We could collapse government'

Re-tabled in a slightly new form by the Lord Hailsham it is anything but innocent. The aim of the ¿meaningful vote¿ is in fact a Brexit veto

Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plans face rejection by parliament's upper chamber this morning, setting the stage for a high-stakes confrontation with rebel lawmakers later in the week which could rock her minority government.

The proposal passed on Monday will now be voted upon in the lower House of Commons on Wednesday, with the pro-EU camp still seeking compromise but warning they could collapse the government unless their demands are met.

"Agreeing to amendable motions would allow parliament to direct the government on its approach to exiting the European Union, binding the prime minister's hands and making it harder to secure a good deal for the United Kingdom", he told reporters.

May's Conservatives do not have a majority in the unelected House of Lords, and with the opposition Labour Party deciding to back a rival proposal, the Lords are expected by early evening to reject the government wording on a "meaningful vote".

Last week, the prime minister avoided defeat on the issue - but the would-be rebels said they were not happy with the concessions they were subsequently offered in return for not voting against the government.

The Taliban chief who ordered the assassination of Malala Yousafzai has been killed in a drone strike, it was announced today. Fazlullah and two other insurgents were killed on Thursday morning in north-eastern Kunar province, Mohammad Radmanish said.

Parliament must not be able to "overturn the will of the British people", Theresa May said as she faced a fresh battle over her Brexit legislation.

"We are absolutely confident that we will deliver a Brexit deal that. would be good for the United Kingdom, good for our European friends and partners".

Last night the House of Lords backed his amendment, paving the way for another crunch vote in the House of Commons over the passage of the bill.

Dominic Grieve, the former attorney general who heads up the pro-European faction, told BBC television that a future vote on a Brexit deal could see May tumble.

But Mr Field said he would be urging ministers to allow it to be debated by the Commons in government time.

Ministers say they are confident of getting a divorce deal that parliament will accept, and that all discussion of the vote is hypothetical.

Last week, Conservative backbenchers that do not agree with the "no deal is better than a bad deal" position reached a compromise with the government. last week The UK prime minister promised a "meaningful vote", in the event there was no deal with the European Union by November 2018.

When asked what could happen if MPs rejects Mrs May's deal, he said: "We could collapse the government".

"Ministers, the prime minister in particular, have promised a meaningful vote, that promise has not been honored", former minister Douglas Hogg, who sits in the House of Lords as Viscount Hailsham and introduced the amendment, told lawmakers.

A statement will then be given in the House of Commons on what course the government should take in the event of a no deal.
