Dominic Grieve: I’m prepared to collapse the Government over Brexit vote

Using words like "bad faith" and "betrayal", pro-Remain Tory MPs have accused the Government of ripping up an agreement they had made with Theresa May earlier this week.

May was forced to quell a rebellion on Tuesday after she faced defeat on a vote in parliament over her Brexit blueprint, or EU withdrawal bill, which will sever ties with the European Union.

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

"This ensures that in all circumstances parliament can hold government to account, while also allowing government to deliver on the will of the British people as expressed in the referendum", a Brexit department spokesman said.

And Eddisbury MP Antoinette Sandbach told Sky News on Friday: "What seems to have happened is very late in the day that DExEU got involved and it looks like the process was hijacked". He added he would listen to the government but "I hope they listen to me when I say I don't understand why you've done this last-minute switch".

He told The Telegraph: "I thought these issues had been resolved hours ago, but at the last minute an element has been changed in a way that is unacceptable".

Labour's Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said: "The Government's amendment is simply not good enough".

The amendment tabled last night sets out the course of action if the prime minister announces before 21 January next year that no deal has been reached.

Peers are to vote on Monday on a proposal to give MPs the power to dictate the Government's response if it fails to reach a deal with Brussels as a potentially bloody round of "parliamentary ping-pong" gets under way.

A United Kingdom government's compromise to avoid a Commons defeat on Brexit has been rejected as "unacceptable" by leading rebel Dominic Grieve.

Mr Tugendhat's warning came as the prime minister continued to wrestle with a demand from Tory Remainer rebels to hand parliament the ability to direct negotiations if it rejects the final deal.

The Solicitor General, Robert Buckland - who acted as a go-between for the Government and the rebels last week - has compared Mrs May's vulnerability to Neville Chamberlain when he lost a Commons vote in 1940, according to the Mail on Sunday.

She hailed Grieve as a "hero" for supporting a final say on Brexit.

"As we are sitting there negotiating on the details of our future relationship or our withdrawal agreement, we can't have a situation where every time we have to take a decision we have to go back and have a lengthy debate", she said.

"It's also important that Parliament can not and should not overturn the will of the British people, which was to leave the European Union". The European Commission has said that after Brexit the United Kingdom can no longer use Galileo - intended for government agencies, emergency services and armed forces - as it will be a foreign entity.

"We recognise the concerns people have about the role of Parliament".

"I'm sorry if they're disappointed by the final terms of it, I really am".
