Davis warns peers to fulfil 'patriotic duty' over Brexit bill
The Government's former Brexit chief has threatened the House of Lords with the prospect of abolition it tries to delay Article 50.
"We've seen a historic vote tonight - a big majority for getting on with negotiating our exit from the European Union and a strong, new partnership with its member states", said Brexit minister David Davis.
The Brexit Secretary, David Davis, urged the House of Lords to do its "patriotic duty" and pass legislation.
The bill has three primary elements: repealing the European Communities Act 1972; preserving EU law where it stands at the moment before the United Kingdom leaves the EU; and enabling changes to be made by secondary legislation to the laws that would otherwise not function sensibly once the United Kingdom has left the EU.
"Our goal will be to protect Britain's membership of the single market, protect the rights of European Union citizens in the United Kingdom and to give the people the final say on Theresa May's deal".
But during five days of debate on the resulting government bill, it became clear that most MPs would not stop the process.

Planning to participate in the Xfinity TV App beta testing? In the future, the app will not require a box, the company said. What it lacks, however, is the ability to rent or purchase content, and play a customer's previously bought content.
The legislation was presented to parliament last week following a U.K. Supreme Court decision which said the government must seek lawmakers' approval before proceeding with Brexit. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said his party will continue to fight Conservative plans for the details of Brexit, including any moves to cut corporation tax.
Shadow business secretary Clive Lewis was one of 52 Labour MPs to defy party orders to back the bill in the Commons and he resigned from the front bench.
SNP lawmakers voiced their frustration during the vote by singing Beethoven's "Ode to Joy", the EU's anthem, before being told off by Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle.
Now, the government must negotiate passage of the law through the unelected Lords, where May's Conservative Party is the biggest grouping but falls well short of a majority (252 out of 805 peers).
"There is no mandate for the hardest of hard Brexits the government favours, which risks leaving us poorer, weaker and more isolated", he said. There the government can't call upon a majority, but it can still call upon a so far successful argument - to block Brexit, is to disrupt democracy.
