House of Lords attacks bill aimed at preventing no-deal Brexit

The legislation, proposed by Labour MP Yvette Cooper and the Conservative Oliver Letwin, passed the House of Commons by just one vote late on Wednesday night.

The bill moved to the Lords on Thursday, but Eurosceptic peers proposed seven procedural amendments to a business motion about it, in an attempt to prevent the legislation being debated.

WATCH | Mark Francois: „It’s difficult to argue that you’ve had a considered debate when you’ve rammed a Bill through the Commons in barely four hours. The public won’t be impressed by this. Forgive them Father for they know not what they do!“

Brexit minister warns that vote by MPs last night to kill off No Deal has actually INCREASED the risk of it ‚accidentally‘ happening because new timetable does not allow enough time to sign it off

The PM would be expected to get an extension with the EU at a European Council meeting on April 10 and MPs would vote to support it the following day.

However, Mr Walker warned that this would not leave enough time time to complete the necessary paperwork before the UK is scheduled to leave the EU on April 12.

MPs back delay bill by just one vote to rule out 12 April no-deal Brexit

However, this does not bind the European Union to the decision, who could reject the outcome of the vote and not offer an extension.

The bill raced through parliament in under six hours, as backbench MPs took control of the parliamentary agenda from the government.

Chris White: The Letwin-Cooper Bill would have constitutional consequences far beyond Brexit

On rare occasions, in times of great urgency, the Commons has concertinaed legislation in a single day. The Official Secrets Act was passed in just a few minutes in 1911 – apparently the Minister explained “in two sentences…that the measure should be passed”, whilst Committee, Report and Third Reading sailed by without a single intervention. Clearly this is a different situation, but the precedent exists for all stages to be debated in a day – certainly other Bills have been debated in a very short space of time.

The Cooper-Letwin bill to stop no-deal Brexit is a dangerous distraction

The bill was published on Tuesday and the idea is that today the Commons will carve out parliamentary time for it to pass through the house and even – if all goes to plan – start its progress though the Commons. Let’s assume, ambitiously, it can clear the House of Commons on Thursday and the House of Lords on Friday and receive royal assent the same day.
