Ministers debate

MPs are set to reject the two changes made to the Brexit bill in the House of Lords when they debate it for the second time later,ministers have said.

Peers want to safeguard the rights of EU citizens in the UK and make sure Parliament has a vote on any deal.

If bothh Houses of Parliament agree on the Bill, Theresa May could trigger Article 50 as early as Tuesday.

However, if an agreement isn’t reached, the Parliament may have to pull an all nighter to agree on terms.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told ITV’s Peston yesterday that “no deal” would be “perfectly OK”. He added that the consequences were not “as apocalyptic as some people like to pretend”.
