Guto Bebb: MP resigns as minister over Brexit vote

A senior Government source said "no decision yet" had been made on whether to accept the amendments supported by arch-Eurosceptics including Jacob Rees-Mogg, Sir Bernard Jenkin, Priti Patel and Iain Duncan Smith, but there were signs at Westminster that Mrs May could be prepared to compromise in an effort to avert a damaging blow to her authority.

Amid an escalating crisis for the prime minister MPs are set to vote on a series of amendments, tabled by members of the European Research Group (ERG), that seek to wreck a blueprint for leaving the EU drawn up at Chequers.

Not only does the prime minister have pro-Brexit MPs in her own party to worry about, but pro-EU Conservatives who are preparing to join forces with Labour to force the government into pursuing a full customs union with the EU.

The report stage of the bill will also see MPs debate a long-awaited amendment that would keep the United Kingdom in the EU customs union post-Brexit that is supported by Labour, the SNP, the Lib Dems and two Tory Remainers, Anna Soubry and Ken Clarke.

May's spokesman said there would be no second referendum under any circumstances, and restated her position that the Chequers plan was the only way to deliver a Brexit that worked in the best interests of the country.

Former Education Secretary Justine Greening called on Monday for a second referendum on Brexit.

The idea of a referendum sequel has always been popular among Remainers - those who voted to stay in the European Union - who believe that the campaign around Brexit was infused with lies and propaganda, and that Leavers, their opponents, never had a coherent plan for withdrawal.

In a BBC television interview on Sunday, Mrs May said she understood the strength of feelings driving the Brexit debate.

She told MPs: "He is absolutely wrong in his reference to the agreement that was reached at Chequers, I would not have gone through all the work that I did to ensure that we reached that agreement only to see it changed in some way through these Bills".

Asked if there was a suggestion that ministers would accept the amendments he said: "No".

"But in practice having looked through the detail now it just won't and I can not see how, going forward, the common rulebook will be workable in practice".

Sir Bernard told the programme that the Chequers plan was "dead", with opposition from both wings of the Tory party.

Other Tory MPs have supported the idea of a second referendum including Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry.

Eurosceptic Conservatives are planning to vote against the government on several amendments to the trade bill.

"Some people are saying they want to vote in the trade bill to keep us in the customs union".

"If, as I expect, that happens and we have a comprehensive deal that can be put before Parliament - and there had been a commitment to have a meaningful vote - what comes with that is the certainty for working people right across the country that will be able to invest with confidence, will be able to create new jobs, that implementation period will be available".
