81% of voters are demanding the Lords see the Withdrawal Bill through and back parliament’s Brexit position.
After a solid week of Brexit debating in the House of Commons, the government saw off any potential rebellion and now are waiting on the lords to see the bill to completion, allowing them to carry on negotiating with the EU.
With just over 1900 Mainstream readers polling, 81% want the unelected chamber to stop causing delays, allowing the UK to get on with delivering Brexit.
What happens now
18 June House of Lords considers House of Commons amendments
Without an agreement between Tory rebels and the government, it is likely peers will pass Mr Grieve’s amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill when it returns to the House of Lords in the latest stage of parliamentary “ping pong”.
20 June Parliamentary showdown?
If passed by the House of Lords, MPs will then be asked whether or not to back Mr Grieve’s amendment in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
Without any further government concessions on the issue, this could see a parliamentary showdown between Tory rebels and Mrs May in a crunch vote.
It has even been suggested a vote could be made a matter of confidence in the prime minister.
