Pro-EU MPs table key Brexit amendment to May's deal

Pro-EU MPs table key Brexit amendment to May's deal

But who'd come out on top if it ever happens?

"If the government is unable to get its deal through parliament on something that's absolutely crucial to its entire programme and to the future of the country, it will have lost the confidence of parliament in any case", he said.

Theresa May has announced that her live debate against Jeremy Corbyn will be broadcast on BBC at 8pm on 9 Sunday, but the Labour leader believes that it should be shown earlier to avoid a clash with I'm a Celebrity.

"Most of all it gets us out of the European Union and it respects the referendum result".

"We wouldn't be contemplating either a general election or a People's Vote, another referendum, unless, you know, Mrs May's deal goes down in the Commons".

"We have been in discussion regarding a single motion for the debate next week which would be agreed by the four parties and would represent what we hope will be the overwhelming view of the Scottish Parliament", it said.

Her SNP colleague Ian Blackford, the party's leader at Westminster, said a May-Corbyn debate would be a "pretty narrow" one and that it was "disrespectful" not to have the third party involved.

Labour MP Hilary Benn is the lead signatory on an amendment to the meaningful vote which if passed would give MPs control over the next steps in the Brexit process should May's Brexit deal with the European Union fail to win support.

Mrs May refused to participate in a multi-party debate ahead of last year's general election, and then-home secretary Amber Rudd appeared in her place.

"The public demand the full facts and figures on the cost of Brexit".

The government confirmed on Wednesday night that it will allow up to six amendments to its main Brexit motion to be voted on first, before the PM's deal.

The Lib Dems are now consulting lawyers to see if their exclusion breaches the Ofcom code. "She doesn't like admitting the ERG, the Brextremist, are right when they say she's negotiated away sovereignty".
