UK government defeats pro-EU lawmakers on Brexit, for now

In the final one, MPs voted by 321 to 40 to reject a string of Lords amendments over the post-Brexit transfer of former European Union powers to the Scottish Government and other devolved assemblies.
Mrs May looked as if she could have been defeated by a key amendment in the European Union withdrawal bill- known as the meaningful vote- introduced by the House of Lords, which would have given parliament powers to direct the Brexit negotiations.
Morgan said if a compromise amendment did not emerge, rebels could work with the Lords to ensure the changes took place.
The parts of his amendment which he expects to be taken forward by ministers provide a mechanism by which Parliament has to be consulted by the end of November in the event of no deal or if a proposed agreement is rejected, he said.
'The government's amendment today provides for a meaningful vote'.
A statement from the Department for Exiting the European Union on Tuesday said David Davis had set three tests for any new amendment: not undermining the negotiations; not changing the constitutional role of parliament and government in negotiating worldwide treaties; and respecting the referendum result.
Mrs May said her approach would be guided by the principle that "the Government's hand in negotiations can not be tied by Parliament, but we need to be accountable to Parliament".
The UK House of Commons is set to vote on Brexit-related laws with voting seen as a test of stability for the UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
Mr Corbyn said: 'I understand the difficulties MPs representing constituencies which voted strongly for Leave or Remain have on the EEA amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill.
But while Wednesday's votes seemed assured, May was under pressure over a promised compromise to quell a rebellion on Tuesday over handing parliament more say over any Brexit deal, with pro-EU lawmakers threatening to withdraw their support.
He confirmed that ministers will seek to overturn the 14 amendments which he said would undermine the objective of the bill and fail to respect the result of the 2016 referendum. We must be clear that we are united as a party in our determination to deliver on the decision made by the British people.
But Brexit campaigners feared it could weaken Britain's negotiating stance in talks to leave the EU.
In a day of drama, May's position seemed suddenly weaker when junior justice minister Phillip Lee, who has always been critical of the government's Brexit strategy, resigned and said he would vote against the government.
"This is the moment when we have to tell each other the truth", said Hilary Benn, a Labour lawmaker who voted for the EEA motion.
"If, in the future, I am to look my children in the eye and honestly say that I did my best for them I can not, in all good conscience, support how our country's exit from the European Union looks set to be delivered".
On Tuesday, parliament will debate a demand for a "meaningful vote" on any agreement May negotiates with Brussels before leaving the bloc next March.
Brexit-backers objected as it would have all but removed the no-deal nuclear option from negotiators' arsenal. In a series of votes the House of Commons largely reversed changes inserted by Parliament's upper House of Lords that would have softened the terms of Brexit.
Justice Minister Philip Lee resigns and pledges to vote against Theresa May on Brexit.
"The goal of the EU Withdrawal Bill is simple - it is putting EU legislation into law to ensure a smooth and orderly transition as we leave".
Ms Allen said: "No Tory MP, not a single one, is trying to stop Brexit".
"Time will tell as to whether this is just another attempt to buy off the rebels or a real attempt at consensus. But if we face the prospect of a "meaningless process" rather than a "meaningful vote", Parliament will be enraged".
She said unless there was a "meaningful vote" Parliament would be left with "the grim choice between a poor deal and exit with no deal at all".
