UK: Government managed to survive the key "Meaningful Vote" - TDS

In UK, the House of Commons voted Tuesday on the first set of 15 House of Lords amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill and the government managed to survive the key "Meaningful Vote" amendment by conceding to a revision that requires a vote in the House of Commons on the government's negotiating strategy if no Brexit deal has been reached by 30 November, notes the research team at TDS.

“The revised amendment will be negotiated this week and presented in the House of Lords next week, and in all likelihood will survive a vote there and head again to the House of Commons in within about 10 days. That means that in all likelihood, the "Meaningful Vote" scheduled for later this year will not be a "take it or leave it" vote, so the UK won't default to Hard Brexit if MPs reject the final Brexit deal. Further votes take place Wednesday.”
