Theresa May today faces one of her biggest leadership tests, as MPs prepare for a series of crunch votes on the Government’s Brexit legislation. Over the next two days, the Commons will have its say on proposed House of Lords amendments to the EU withdrawal bill - including one which would give Parliament a “meaningful vote” on the PM’s final deal and future negotiations - in a marathon session starting at 1pm today. The most significant of the votes - and perhaps the most important Commons decision of the year so far - is expected at around 4pm. That’s when we will find out just how many Tory “Remainer rebels” really do mean business on Brexit, as MPs decide whether to give themselves a final say. A report by Matthew Parris in The Times - backed up by the shock resignation of justice minister and ardent Remainer Philip Lee on Tuesday morning - suggested the moment could be so historic that it “could evince some quiet heroism from … [Read more...] about Here’s What To Expect From Today’s Crunch Commons Brexit Votes
TODAY MPs will start voting on a series of key amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill - with Theresa May keen to undo the damage done by the House of Lords. Many of the amendments are likely to be thrown out by the Commons immediately. But others are seriously worrying ministers - because rebel Tories are set to team up with opposition parties to force them into law. There will be three sets of votes over the next two days: one this afternoon, another this evening and a third taking place tomorrow night. Giving MPs the power to stop the UK from leaving the EU without a deal This amendment, to be voted on this afternoon, is proving the most dangerous to the Government, because a number of pro-EU Tory MPs support it. This morning Phillip Lee resigned as a minister to enable him to back the amendment, which would give Parliament the right to send Theresa May back to the negotiating table if MPs reject her Brexit deal. Ministers have offered a compromise but so far it hasn’t worked. … [Read more...] about What EU Withdrawal Bill amendments are MPs voting on today and which ones are likely to become law?

The automotive industry is warning that an EU proposal set to be adopted on Wednesday (16 May) does not give enough lead time before limits will be required. But the US and China have had limits in place for several years. While cars and vans in the European Union have had limits on the amount of carbon they emit for some time, until now trucks have avoided the same fate. That will change on Wednesday, when the European Commission adopts a proposal for the EU’s first CO2 limits on heavy-duty vehicles. These vehicles make up just 5% of all road traffic, but account for a quarter of EU road CO2 emissions. That’s not just because they’re bigger – it’s also because they are driven more often and over longer distances than cars. Though no figure has been confirmed, the Commission is expected to propose a reduction of at least 30% by 2030. All new trucks built after the legislation takes effect – expected in 2020 – will have to comply with emission … [Read more...] about Truck industry braces for their first CO2 limits in Europe
