On 12 June, it was announced that The EU Withdrawal Bill will be returned to the House of Commons.

The legislation faced 15 defeats in the House of Lords, not debated by MPs.

Conservative MPs have been told to be on site “at all times” during the day of the votes.

The PM’s spokesman replied that there were Lords amendments the government thinks are unacceptable and will be seeking to overturn.

Numbers are tight with the Tories needing the support of the Democratic Unionist Party for a majority. It involves transposing EU law into UK law to ensure a smooth transition on Brexit day.

In a letter presented to MPs, Conservative chief whip Julian Smith said: “I wanted to again reiterate the importance of the next few weeks. We will be facing a number of votes on important legislation as well as Opposition Day debates.”

the Labour Whips’ Office posted on Twitter, holding all of the votes on one day was “an absolute disgrace” and “must be out of sheer panic”.

The Commons added, “has had nothing to do for months in terms of substantive business and to try to ram through in one day shows the contempt that the government has for the role of Parliament”.
