Brexit: The rebel Tory MPs who could inflict first defeat on Government

Mr Davis promised MPs there would be

British airlines will lose all flying rights the European Union has negotiated with third countries as well as those negotiated by individual EU states after Britain quits the bloc, the EU executive said in a note.

Mr Davis also penned a last-gasp letter to Tory MPs early on Wednesday morning as ministers battle to avoid a defeat.

"The only way to guarantee that MPs will have the ability to vote on Brexit on behalf of our constituents is for us to come together and back amendment seven".

The Prime Minister told MPs: "We were very clear that we won't commence any statutory instruments until that meaningful vote has taken place".

A European Parliament spokesman stressed that Wednesday's vote is not an indication of whether or not the European Parliament will give its consent to the final withdrawal deal, on which it holds a veto.

The vote took place a day before European Union leaders are expected to sign off on an agreement reached last week by Prime Minister Theresa May and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on the first phase of the talks - known as the joint report.

Former minister Mr Penrose said: "As it stands at the moment I don't think that the words that they have got in this Bill is passing the sniff test for an terrible lot of us in this room".

He also hit back at former Tory leader and Brexiteer Iain Duncan Smith, who accused Mr Grieve of "grandstanding" over the bill. "For people to say that in a tabling of an amendment you are somehow trying to thwart or stop Brexit is frankly gravely offensive and that level of insult, because it is an insult, has got to stop, " she said.

The approval from lawmakers is "a foregone conclusion", Senate Minority leader Franklin Drilon told reporters on Monday. "Congress is a political body, the President has supermajority in both houses".

Barnier said a lot more further steps were required to secure an orderly withdrawal.

The lead rebel, Dominic Grieve, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, but one of his colleagues, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Davis's reassurances weren't enough for them.

Signalling support for Mr Grieve's amendment and a similar measure proposed by Labour, shadow Brexit minister Matthew Pennycook said: " Tory rebels have talked the talk, now they must walk the walk. Grieve urged rebels not to be bought off by "warm words and woolly concessions".

Of the "meaningful vote" debate, Ms Sandbach says: "I don't want the Government to push it to a vote, I would like them to accept that amendment".

Mr Davis's comment that the deal agreed by the Prime Minister and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker on the issues of citizens' rights, the Irish border and the UK's £39 billion divorce bill amounted to a "statement of intent" rather than a binding agreement has angered prominent MEPs.

The European Commission has issued a notice to flight operators warning that United Kingdom carriers could be prevented from flying in EU airspace in March 2019 if no Brexit deal is reached.

European Union leaders are nearly certain to judge on Friday that "sufficient progress" has been made on the rights of citizens, the Brexit divorce bill and the Irish border to allow negotiations to move to the next phase.
