British Parliament to get binding vote on final Brexit deal

It will deal with issues including the financial settlement, citizens' rights and transition arrangements.

However, Davis admitted that if there is no deal agreed before the March 2019 exit date then there will be no withdrawal agreement bill and therefore nothing for MPs to vote.

'I can now confirm that once we've reached an agreement we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that agreement, ' he told parliament.

The EU Withdrawal Bill, which formally converts all European Union (EU) legislation into United Kingdom law to ensure complete clarity on Brexit day "March 29, 2019", returns for a line by line scrutiny by lawmakers in what is referred to as the committee stage of the bill.

"This agreement will only hold if Parliament approves it".

British MPs returned to the House of Commons today after a brief parliamentary recess to what promises to be a bruising battle over a crucial Brexit legislation transferring existing European Union laws to Britain.

Pro-EU MPs within the Conservative party are confident of a rebellion by up to 10 MPs, which could mean a major defeat for the government.

Conservative backbenchers previously warned they were ready to support an amendment demanding the UK's divorce deal is approved by an Act of Parliament.

PM back for gay marriage results
After months of fierce debate on both sides, supporters of marriage equality are expected to emerge victorious. According to the latest estimate, 78.5 per cent of eligible voters had returned a ballot as of Friday.

But the Government's beefed-up promise for a parliamentary vote did not dispel concerns surrounding the EU Withdrawal Bill. "In spring 2019 Britain will leave". There'd be no time!

Heidi Allen said Mr Davis's attempt at a concession was "pointless" as the Government is trying to amend the Withdrawal Bill to say Britain's membership of the European Union will formally end at 11pm GMT on March 29 2019.

"For months, Labour has been calling on ministers to guarantee parliament a final say on the withdrawal agreement".

Keir Starmer, Labour's Brexit spokesman, said the proposed law was "a significant climbdown from a weak government on the verge of defeat" in a series of upcoming lawmaker Brexit debates.

"With less than 24 hours before they had to defend their flawed bill to Parliament they have finally backed down", he said.

He said the government will introduce a new immigration bill next year setting out those plans in more detail.

However, the bid to head off opposition from restive lawmakers was met with criticism as MPs claimed the vote would be meaningless and give them little time to consider any eventual Brexit deal.
