Brexit: PM warns Lords amendment would 'incentivise' EU to give Britain a bad deal

Theresa May has warned peers they would give the European Union an incentive to offer Britain a bad Brexit Deal if they pass a further amendment to the Article 50 bill.
The House of Lords is expected to vote on Tuesday on an amendment calling for Westminster to get a "meaningful" vote on the eventual Brexit agreement.

The PM has promised Parliament a vote, but only on a "take it or leave it" basis, which would see the UK leave the EU without a deal if MPs reject the agreement.

A number of peers also want the option of telling ministers to go back to the negotiating table to thrash out a better deal.

Some opposition members believe Mrs May's position that "no deal is better than a bad deal" risks a "cliff-edge" move onto World Trade Organization tariffs which would harm the UK economy.

Mrs May's spokesman said: "She believes we should not commit to any process that would incentivise the EU to offer us a bad deal.

"If we are in a position where any deal negotiated by the Prime Minister could be rejected by MPs, that gives strength potentially to other parties in the negotiation."
