The British Prime Minister Delivers Her Brexit Speech

The rejection of any deal at that vote would see the United Kingdom crash out of the EU WTO rules - making it of no meaningful use to opponents of "hard Brexit".

The Bill returned to the Commons on Monday for a further three days of debate during committee stage, giving MPs the chance to amend the legislation.

During seven hours of debate, lawmakers voted against a series of attempts by pro-EU lawmakers to attach extra conditions to May's plan to begin divorce talks by March 31.

He published a statement on Facebook, saying: "Today, on my own initiative, I am coming out of hospital to support the government on the Article 50 bill".

Brexit minister David Jones earlier told MPs there will be a vote on the deal "before it is concluded" and it is meant to take place before the European Parliament debates and votes on the agreement.

Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said this was a "huge and very important concession" by the government.

Parliament will get to vote on the final Brexit deal before it goes before the European Parliament, the Government has conceded.

IAAF maintain ban on Russian athletes
Lord Coe also reiterated the IAAF's commitment to giving clean Russian athletes the possibility to compete as neutrals. Individual Russian athletes can apply to take part in worldwide events as neutrals if they are deemed drug-free.

He added: "The treasury committee has heard a good deal of evidence to suggest the failure to guarantee the rights of European Union nationals is now beginning to damage the economy".

Thirteen Labour frontbenchers voted against Mr Corbyn's orders last week, while shadow home secretary Diane Abbot did not vote, citing a migraine.

The bill is expected to complete its passage through the lower House of Commons on Wednesday.

If lawmakers chose to reject the deal, the United Kingdom would have no trading agreement with the European Union and would have to revert to World Trade Organization terms, Clarke said.

But that afternoon the Prime Minister's spokesperson had confirmed to journalists at an official briefing that the Government had not changed its position and was only offering a "take-it-or-leave-it" vote.

Former ministers Anna Soubry and Dominic Grieve were thought to be among the potential rebels, alongside veteran pro-European Ken Clarke, the only Tory to oppose the Bill in last week's second reading vote.
