To avoid a rebellion, May proposed a plan whereby, if parliament rejected its deal, ministers would have 28 days to come up with a plan of action and present it to lawmakers.

LONDON - A junior member of Prime Minister Theresa May's government resigned Tuesday over Brexit, emboldening pro-EU lawmakers ahead of key votes in Parliament on Britain's departure from the European Union.

■ BRUSSELS" decision to bar the United Kingdom from the Galileo satellite navigation system is "completely unacceptable', defence minister Guto Bebb has told MPs.

Mr Grieve previously tabled his own proposals, which would have allowed Parliament to dictate the next steps the Government should take if no deal was reached by the end of February.

"It is not in accordance with the normal procedures of the House of Commons and it totally negates the point of the amendment, which was to give MPs a say".

Leading rebel Dominic Grieve said he hoped a compromise would be found, but if not, "this isn't the end of the matter".

Compared to the government's proposal, this is a shorter time to respond, and gives parliament a vote to approve the response.

The European Union Withdrawal Bill, a complex piece of legislation meant to disentangle Britain from the bloc, has had a rocky ride through Parliament.

Another flashpoint could come when lawmakers vote Wednesday on an amendment seeking to keep Britain in a customs union with the EU.

On the meaningful vote, he said: "In all conscience, I can not support the Government's decision to oppose this amendment because doing so breaches such fundamental principles of human rights and Parliamentary sovereignty".

On Wednesday the British parliament will vote on an amendment by the House of Lords requiring the House of Commons to explore remaining part of the European Economic Area (EEA), an option often referred to as "the Norway model".

"I have agreed this morning with the Brexit Secretary that we will bring forward an amendment in the Lords".

The development led to a furious spat on Twitter between two senior Tories from either side of the Brexit divide, with Leave-backing Sir Bernard Jenkin insisting there was "only agreement for discussions, not concessions", while pro-EU Anna Soubry retorted: "Bernard you weren't there and I was".

Amendment 19 would enhance the powers of parliament in the Brexit process by making a Commons vote on the final withdrawal terms a "meaningful vote".

But Brexit campaigners feared it could weaken Britain's negotiating stance in talks to leave the European Union and the Brexit ministry was quick to put out a statement saying: "We have not, and will not, agree to the House of Commons binding the government's hands in the negotiation".

Earlier this year, Lee had called on the government to release its economic impact assessments of Brexit and suggested the government change tack in talks with the European Union, underlining the deep rifts in his party over the best way to manage Britain's exit.

One Tory Leaver said: "We need to know more about what exactly the prime minister has told the rebels".

"Time will tell as to whether this is just another attempt to buy off the rebels or a real attempt at consensus".

But this week, HuffPost published a blog by Tom Holder explaining, despite being a strong supporter of a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal, he won't be joining us.

Ukip leader Gerard Batten said: "The only "meaningful vote" was the verdict of the people in referendum of June 23 2016".
