Corbyn orders his MPs not to vote for European Union withdrawal bill

Corbyn orders his MPs not to vote for European Union withdrawal bill”

Now is the time for her to start putting things right, for the sake of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU.

Bill, which MPs start scrutinising tomorrow, should be a supremely boring piece of legislation.

Keir Starmer, the shadow Brexit secretary, has repeatedly said Labour will not support the bill without significant changes to its content, because of concerns that it would allow ministers to make sweeping changes to legislation without parliamentary scrutiny.

"Now it is time for Parliament to play its part".

"The Repeal Bill. (is) the single most important step we can take to prevent a cliff-edge for people and businesses, because it transfers laws and provides legal continuity", she said in comments provided by her office. But his U-turn on the Single Market and his decision to fight the withdrawal bill suggest Parliamentary Labour Party's Europhile majority is back in control.

"No Conservative wants a bad Brexit deal, or to do anything that increases the threat of a Corbyn government", he warned.

But outspoken pro-Remain former minister Anna Soubry responded angrily to attempts to try to stop Tory MPs tabling or supporting amendments to the legislation, telling the Observer: "Any suggestion that this is in any way treacherous or supporting Jeremy Corbyn is outrageous".

"I think she's doing a very good job, a very effective job. It will all backfire on them".

Brexit Secretary David Davis faces a grilling in the Commons today following months of negotiations which the European Union claims has failed to deliver "decisive" progress on key issues.

Meanwhile Number 10 sources rejected as "not true" a Sunday Times report that Mrs May was preparing to approve a Brexit divorce bill of up to £50 billion after the Tory conference in October.

A SENIOR Government minister has broken ranks and openly questioned Theresa May's plan to lead the Conservatives into the next general election, saying it remains to be seen whether she stays Prime Minister after Brexit.

They will target areas such as trying to stay in the single market during at least the transitional period, securing a guarantee for the rights of European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom, and watering down the ability of ministers to change primary legislation through secondary legislation - a practice known as exercising Henry VIII powers.

In a strongly worded statement, Labour said the bill, in its current form, would allow ministers to slash rights at work and cut protection for consumers and the environment.

"This power-grab bill would do the opposite".
