UK Government publishes White Paper on Brexit

Mr Lee was the only Remainer MP to have his Trade Bill amendment voted for by MPs on Tuesday.

But the ball is back in Remainers' court tonight as they will seek to vote through a amendment guaranteeing the government negotiates involvement in a customs union with the EU.

Tory Eurosceptics appear intent on a programme of rolling resignations in response to Theresa May's plan to keep the United Kingdom closely tied to the European Union after Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May narrowly avoided a defeat in parliament at the hands of pro-EU lawmakers from her own party on Tuesday, fending off a rebellion that had threatened to deepen a crisis over her Brexit strategy.

Applying EU tariffs to products destined for the EU is part of Mrs May's plan to avoid friction at United Kingdom borders after Brexit.

Significantly, she called for a three-way referendum-offering voters a choice of Brexit with whatever deal Theresa May secures, Brexit with no deal, or remaining in the EU.

Meanwhile, May will also test her plan with the European Union this week, with Brexit negotiations due to resume in Brussels on Monday and the other 27 leaders due to hold their first talks on the proposal on Friday.

Defense Minister Guto Bebb resigned so he could vote against the government.

It references the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which, it points out, includes some of the EU's most ambitious third country arrangements to date but which, in practice, still places significant restrictions on cross-border market access for the legal profession.

The UK is due to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019 but has yet to agree how its final relationship with the bloc will work. That means May will rely on her slim majority in parliament, which is propped up by DUP votes.

- David Davis The Tory veteran quit as Brexit secretary late on Sunday July 8, telling the Prime Minister: "The general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one".

A Labour whips source confirmed that the party would be opposing the early recess motion, telling City A.M.: "There are important issues facing this country and the general public won't understand if MPs break up early for their holidays".

Around 40 Tory MPs have reportedly already submitted a letter to the party leadership calling for a vote of no confidence.

British Prime Minister Theresa May won a series of votes in parliament yesterday, keeping her over-arching strategy to leave the European Union just about on track after bowing to pressure from Brexit supporters in her party.
