UK: Davis’s Brexit vote offer fails to win over Tory rebels

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“A key parliamentary battle over crucial Brexit legislation will recommence in parliament, as Conservative MPs suggested a concession by David Davis to give MPs a ‘take it or leave it’ vote on any exit deal would not be enough to stave off rebellion. Speaking in the House of Commons on Monday, before eight days of debate over the EU withdrawal bill, the Brexit secretary pledged to introduce legislation to parliament that will allow MPs to vote on the final Brexit deal, either to accept or reject it and crash out with no deal in place. Conservative rebels who met the chief whip, Julian Lewis, overnight are understood to have made clear they have no intention of backing down over the bill’s most contentious points, including enshrining a meaningful vote in law.” (11/14/17)
