Lawmakers supported the government's position to reject amendments to the EU withdrawal bill that challenged May's commitment to leave the bloc's customs union and single market, leaving the overall shape of her Brexit strategy intact that will transform Britain's trading relationships for decades.

"The main reason for my taking this decision now is the Brexit process and the government's wish to limit parliament's role in contributing to the final outcome in a vote that takes place today", he said in a statement released on his website.

Parliament must decide whether to support an amendment approved by the House of Lords that could mean sending May back into negotiations with the European Union if lawmakers reject a Brexit deal.

A third part of Grieve's amendment, which the government has not agreed to discuss and is likely to resist, would hand control of the Brexit negotiations to parliament if an exit deal has not been agreed by February 15 next year.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, and the bloc is frustrated with what it sees as a lack of firm proposals from the U.K about future relations.

Potential rebels who stepped back from voting against the Government said they were relying on "personal assurances" from the Prime Minister that changes would be introduced to the Bill to ensure that MPs get a real say on the final deal.

Compared to the government's proposal, this is a shorter time to respond, and gives parliament a vote to approve the response.

"I am very pleased that the government has listened to the concerns of many colleagues and has responded positively to the need to amend the bill further to provide a proper mechanism to enable Parliament to act, where necessary, if there is no deal or a deal is rejected by negotiations", Grieve said.
