Labour will impose a three-line whip on its MPs to vote against the European Union withdrawal bill next week, while stressing that the party still fully respects the democratic decision of the country in the Brexit referendum.

Bill transposes existing European Union laws into British law as part of the Brexit process.

He did say Britain was likely to end up paying money into the European Union budget after Brexit for access to cross-border schemes like space and nuclear research, though the sum would not be large over the medium to long-term.

And he said Labour would be "irresponsible" to attempt to block its passage in the Commons.

Some of the criticism, including from Tories, has focused on the so-called "Henry VIII" powers to change laws without full parliamentary scrutiny.

Lib Dem leader Vince Cable this morning told the BBC the government was "usurping a great deal of power from parliament".

They are pledging to listen to all opinions during an historic two-day House of Commons debate on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, but claim it is vital the Bill is passed by MPs.

"Nobody voted in last year's referendum to give this Conservative government sweeping powers to change laws by the back door".

"Starting the new parliamentary session with the Withdrawal Bill shows that it is now the job of all MPs, including my former colleagues on the Stronger In campaign, to respect the will of the people and get the best possible deal for Britain", he wrote in the Sunday Telegraph. Now is the time for her to start putting things right, for the sake of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU.

THERESA May offered to compromise with Tory MPs furious about a government power grab in the landmark Brexit bill.
