May sur­vives vote

Coventry Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

THERESA MAY has seen off a po­ten­tial de­feat over her flag­ship Brexit bill, af­ter last-minute con­ces­sions which could give MPs a big­ger say on the fi­nal with­drawal agree­ment and make a “no-deal” exit much less likely.

MPs voted by 324 to 298 to re­ject a House of Lords amend­ment to the EU With­drawal Bill which would have given MPs the power to tell the Prime Min­is­ter to go back and rene­go­ti­ate the Brexit deal.
