UK Gov’t Wins Key Brexit Vote

The UK government has agreed to give parliament more power over its Brexit negotiations in a last-ditch bid to avoid a damaging House of Commons defeat. Rebel Conservative MPs, who had threatened to vote against the government, agreed to lend their numbers to overturn a House of Lords amendment giving parliament a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal after ministers agreed to address their concerns. The Lords amendment was defeated in the Commons Tuesday by 324 votes to 298, Politico reported.   The amendment was one of 15 that peers had made to the bill as it made a bruising passage through the upper chamber. The government hopes to strip out or replace all but one of those amendments. It was most vulnerable on the so-called meaningful vote amendment, but had strongly resisted it on the grounds that it would set a precedent if the executive is no longer able to negotiate international treaties.
