Four dozen Labour MPs rebel against Jeremy Corbyn over Brexit bill

Parliament

The House of Commons approved the bill for the Brexit.

The government breathed a sigh of relief tonight as MPs approved its European Union withdrawal bill, setting the scene for a showdown over the flagship Brexit legislation in the House of Lords.

The EU withdrawal bill cleared the House of Commons at a third reading by 324 votes to 295, despite Labour, the SNP and the Liberal Democrats voting against it.

However, the legislation is likely to return to the House of Commons after peers signalled their intent to add amendments in the upper chamber.

"We are pleased that the bill has successfully completed this stage of its passage through Parliament". It will be debated by the House of Lords from the end of January.

The Brexit Act repeals the 1972 law by which Britain became a member of the European Union and implemented European laws in British law.

The 48 Labour MPs - about one in five of the Parliamentary Labour Party - voted against the party whip despite being urged to abstain in advice from the leadership.

"The bottom line is that looking ahead if Brexit doesn't work for young people in our country, in the end it will not be sustainable".

Prime Minister Theresa May faced a setback last month when 11 of her own Conservative MPs voted with the main opposition Labour Party for an amendment to have a meaningful vote on the terms of Brexit.

A cross-party amendment supported by the SNP and Liberal Democrats that would have tied the Withdrawal Bill to keeping the United Kingdom in the European single market fell after Labour ordered its MPs to abstain.

He said Labour had "repeatedly" pointed out "six serious defects in the Bill", and said: "But we have been talking to a brick wall".
