MPs will get a 'deal or no deal' vote on Brexit terms
Theresa May has faced down a Conservative rebellion over Brexit in the House of Commons, rejecting calls for MPs to be able to send her back to the negotiating table if they do not like her deal with the EU.
At the last Labour Party conference in September, delegates passed motions that we were proud of Europe and we would be the party that defends membership of the European Union.
May's government is seeking permission from lawmakers to trigger the start of the Brexit process by invoking Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty.
It is believed the party's chief whip Nick Brown wanted "consistency" in dealing with the bill, which Labour is trying to amend at the committee stage.
The argument I have made about a vote over the last three months is that the vote must cover the Article 50 deal and any future relationship and that it must take place before the deal has been concluded.
Mrs May has said she wants an early agreement on their status but is resisting calls from many MPs to offer a unilateral guarantee - saying she wants reciprocal guarantees from other European Union countries about United Kingdom citizens living on the continent.
Australia's leader says Trump isn't chasing a refugee deal
He added, "And there is no linkage, no linkage at all between an arrangement relating to a refugee resettlement and any other matters".
Earlier today, Brexit Minister David Jones said that the Government WOULD allow a vote before the deal was approved by the European Parliament.
Opposition MPs have raised questions about the apparent concession, with Shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer saying that much of the second day of debate should be focused on "probing the concession", as "greater clarification" was needed.
"A good deal may be possible, and it is in all our interests to ensure this is the case, but we could be about to commit this country to a path which will leave us weakened and damaged".
"They're all unnecessary, some of them are wrecking and I am expecting to vote against them".
Mr Jones said: "If there were no agreement at all, which is a scenario I think is extremely unlikely, then ultimately it would be falling back upon World Trade Organisation arrangements".
MPs have been debating Brexit until the midnight hours for the past week during the passage of the Government's Article 50 Bill.
