Speaking in the House of Commons before MPs began debating amendments to a Bill authorising her to start formal Brexit negotiations, the prime minister urged MPs to reject an amendment calling for a unilateral guarantee.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has promised to trigger Article 50 of the EU's governing treaties by the end of March, after which negotiators will have two years to thrash out a deal before Brexit happens.

Bill 2016-17, which has passed two readings in the House of Commons, is now passing through parliamentary committees and may still be amended. The party has already failed to pass amendments boosting parliamentary scrutiny of the Brexit negotiations and are also likely to lose amendments on Tuesday forcing May to hold a "meaningful vote" on the final Brexit deal. "It's either vote for the deal... or leave the European Union without a negotiated deal".

Mr Boles piled even more pressure on Ms Abbott as he wrote from hospital: 'Today, on my own initiative, I am coming out of hospital to support the government on the Article 50 bill.

"There are of course further stages for the Bill in committee and in the Lords and it is right that this process should be completed properly".

An opinion poll published on Monday suggested that the Government had for the first time won the approval of a majority of the British public for its approach to leaving the European Union.

At one point, the Falcons' win probability reached 99.6 percent, according to ESPN and Fox Sports. He asked Bouchard if she would go on a date with him if the Patriots came back to win the game.

Seven Conservatives voted for the amendment along with 210 Labour and 54 Scottish National Party (SNP) MPs.

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer praised the move, which he described as a "huge and very important concession".

This is the full statement published by Jonathon Proctor, chair of Labour Against Brexit, after Jeremy Corbyn imposed a three-line whip on the vote on article 50 tomorrow.

"The vote they're offering - which will give MPs a choice between an extreme Brexit and falling off a cliff edge into WTO trade rules - isn't a concession, it's an ultimatum".

He says that the vote will cover Britain's withdrawal arrangements and its future relationship with the EU.
