United Kingdom government disappointed by Lords votes on Brexit laws, vows robust action

Keir Starmer

"As for individual amendments, we have said we will look at those and discuss those in due course", the spokesman said, adding that if the government's hands were tied in the talks, "that's not something we believe is in the UK's interest".

"The public voted in the referendum, they voted to leave the European Union, the House of Commons passed the legislation to allow that to happen".

He conceded the parliamentary arithmetic was hard in a hung parliament.

Downing Street would not commit to saying the prime minister was confident she would overturn all of the defeats in the Lords.

His comments come ahead of a crunch meeting of the Cabinet's Brexit sub-committee, which will decide on the UK's approach to future customs arrangements.

Liam Fox said today that neither post-Brexit customs options to be presented to cabinet ministers tomorrow solve key red lines, amid hints that he would resign if his ability to strike trade deals were curtailed. Fox and Boris Johnson have called on May to abandon her preferred option of a "customs partnership", which relies on Britain collecting European Union import tariffs on behalf of Brussels.

Hardware failure led to Toronto stock exchange shutdown, says TMX
The S&P/TSX Index was up 31 points or 0.2 per cent at 1:39 p.m., the last time Friday's trading volume was updated on all charts. The Ontario Securities Commission, meanwhile, referred all questions regarding the outage back to the exchange.

The UK and European Union have agreed there will be no hardening of the Irish border but are at odds on how to achieve that.

Dr Fox denied that a string of parliamentary defeats being inflicted on the Government would eventually force it into accepting that the United Kingdom would have to be part of some form of customs union with the EU - something Mrs May has previously ruled out.

Fox said on Tuesday: "I don't think there is a customs union that could ever be acceptable".

Shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer urged the Prime Minister to accept the cross-party amendment, warning that there was "no majority in Parliament for a no-deal Brexit".

In a fresh blow to Theresa May's Brexit plans, the House of Lords voted to give Parliament a decisive say on the outcome of the negotiations. Labour sources said he would be hauled before Labour's leader in the Lords and chief whip, but the Conservatives called for him to be sacked.
