Brexit to set the tone for Parliament as summer break ends

Labour's refusal to support the legislation means Theresa May will have to rely on the help of the Democratic Unionist party to get her flagship legislation passed to its next stage.

Labour will call on Prime Minister Theresa May to make a series of changes including allowing parliament to replicate any new European Union laws on employment rights, the environment and consumer protection, The Times reported, citing a letter sent by Labour's Brexit spokesman to minister David Davis.

In an August 31 debate, the main opposition Labour Party is planning to propose several changes to the repeal bill with a view to keeping Britain in the single market and customs union during a Brexit transition period after 2019, according to The Times.

Jeremy Corbyn is set to demand his MPs vote against the Brexit bill when it finally comes before the Commons this week.

They are pledging to listen to all opinions during an historic two-day House of Commons debate on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, but claim it is vital the Bill is passed by MPs.

Remainers among the Conservatives signalled that they will not vote against the Bill over the next week but could rebel at later stages.

The statement went on to say: "Nobody voted in last year's referendum to give this Conservative Government sweeping powers to change laws by the back door". On Feb. 2, May's deputy advised Conservative lawmakers against doing anything that would increase Labour's chances of returning to power, while May said the bill was the best way to ensure a successful Brexit. 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.

Mrs May is already facing a potential rebellion from Remain-supporting MPs within her own party, who might be tempted to back Labour's attempt to amend the bill.

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. And the bank has just predicted that, due to Tory in-fighting over Brexit, May's government will face a "no confidence" vote in parliament.

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.

Chris Leslie, a Labour MP and former shadow chancellor, said: "Maastricht took five weeks to debate".
