PM May's Brexit plans set for defeat, teeing up Wednesday showdown

But, the pro-EU MPs' version of what they were promised appears to differ from what they government says it offered, threatening to reignite the dispute and reviving the possibility of a revolt that would badly damage May's authority.

The Prime Minister has insisted she did not break her word on Parliament having a meaningful vote on final decisions about Brexit, but argued that MPs can not expect to "tie the hands of Government in negotiations".

Grieve said: "I can't save the government from getting into a situation where parliament might disagree with it".

The prime minister agreed to put forward a compromise amendment that would "give ministers until the end of November to reach an agreement with the European Union on the final Brexit deal".

Mrs May avoided nearly certain defeat in the House of Commons on Tuesday by inviting potential rebels into her private office and assuring them that their concerns about having a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal would be addressed.

In an interview broadcast on Sunday, Lee said he planned to back Grieve's amendment, and indicated that other ministers could be prepared to follow his example.

Brussels is concerned that the London's demands for tighter collaboration could do harm to the "autonomy of the EU's decision-making" and set a precedent for other non-EU countries.

The bill will now returns to the House of Lords early next week, with both the government amendment and Mr Grieve's original amendment expected to be debated.

"The majority of MPs will not support a cliff-edge no-deal Brexit & will insist on a meaningful vote".

Speaking on why she voted against the government, Soubry tweeted "I voted in favour of the Lords amendment because I feared she would not be able to deliver on her promise because she won't see off the no deal hard Brexiteers".

"I think we are going to get a meaningful vote anyway".

But following the release of the Government's proposals, she said: "I understand the Government has tabled an amendment that has not been agreed by Dominic Grieve".

"Grateful for the conversations but without consultation what was agreed earlier today has been changed".

However, the Grieve amendment was not forced to a vote on Tuesday after would-be rebels accepted "personal assurances" from the PM that a compromise would be found.

In the House of Commons on Thursday morning, Labor's Brexit spokesman Sir Keir Starmer pressed Brexit Secretary David Davis on seemingly conflicting accounts of what the would-be rebels were offered. Under this plan, if the government failed to reach an agreement, "they would have to seek the approval of MPs on their plan to break the deadlock".

Several pro-EU MPs threatened to rebel over whether parliament should have more control over any final deal agreed with the EU in Brussels. "Parliament can not - and should not - accept it".

The European Union has rejected post-Brexit defense plan since the United Kingdom can not maintain full participation in the bloc's foreign policy. Not only would it make a no-deal exit impossible, but "the EU would [also] know that by December it would be dealing with friendly Commons Remainers keen to keep us in the customs union and single market".
