"When the Government is able to set out an achievable, clearly defined path, one that has been properly considered, whose implications have been foreseen, and that is rooted in reality and evidence, not dreams and dogma, it should go to the people, once again, to seek their confirmation", he wrote.

Pro-Brexit members of the government want to be able to play the "no deal" card, but the House of Commons, where pro-EU voices are stronger, would nearly certainly reject the idea.

MPs voted by 324 votes to 298 to back the government in rejecting an amendment passed by peers that would strengthen the hand of the Commons in the event of it rejecting the final Brexit deal.

Philip Lee said a choice between "bad and worse" options was not giving MPs a meaningful vote.

"In all conscience, I can not support the Government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and Parliamentary sovereignty".

Trudeau later said he reiterated to Trump that tariffs will harm industries and workers on both sides of the U.S. Trump revoked his administration's support for the G-7 communique after Trudeau's news conference.

Earlier, most of the original 11 rebels on the meaningful vote amendment had indicated that they would stand firm. "And I can not bring myself to vote for it in the bastion of liberty, freedom and human rights that is our Parliament". "It is, however, irresponsible to proceed as we are".

In his speech Grieve said he wanted to see progress on having a "proper structure" to address a no deal scenario, adding: "I don't think this Bill can finish its course and get royal assent until we have that".

What does his resignation mean for the government?

Brexit campaigners still expressed concern that the concession may open the door to the European Union trying to force Britain into retaining the closest possible ties with the bloc by weakening the government's hand in the talks.

And to avoid a sudden "cliff edge" on Brexit day, 29 March 2019, it would also convert existing European Union law into United Kingdom law so the government and Parliament can decide at a later date which bits they want to keep or change.

But Solicitor General Robert Buckland publicly implied that Government would be accepting part of Grieve's amendment, and said that a "structured discussion" would take place with rebels. Labour will only vote for a final Brexit deal if it delivers a strong relationship with the Single Market based on full tariff-free access and ensures no loss of rights and standards.

The government says the changes would weaken Britain's negotiating position and is seeking to reverse them in the Commons.

He also warned any attempt by so-called hard Brexiteers to "overthrow" Mrs May would be "completely mad".

At a meeting of the 1922 Committee of backbenchers Monday night, Mrs. Junior Minister quit the government so he could back the veto proposal.

However, the compromise is only likely to delay a full-blown showdown on the customs union until trade legislation returns to the Commons in July.
