MPs will consider 15 amendments put forward by the House of Lords in the Commons, from remaining in the EU single market to Parliament having a final say on whether a Brexit deal is rejected.
MP Bob Seely says he’ll be “supporting the government” and rejecting the majority of the amendments.
Bob Seely said:
“It’s going to be very close but I think the Government has probably got the numbers to carry the day. I’m voting and supporting with the Government because the Isle of Wight voted to leave, and the British people voted to leave the European Union. I’m respecting the wishes of British people and I’m respecting democracy, and that’s why I’m voting as I am. It#s a big day for Parliament and a big day for democracy.”
