Boris Johnson bows to Conservative rebels with Brexit bill compromise – BBC News

The Government has backed down in its stand-off with Conservative MPs, over controversial legislation that would override the Brexit withdrawal deal it reached with Brussels, breaking international law.

Ministers have agreed to a compromise which will give MPs a vote before it used the new powers.

The agreement is intended to prevent a damaging revolt by Conservatives who say that breaking the international treaty agreed by Boris Johnson would be deeply damaging to the UK’s reputation.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by political editor Laura Kuenssberg.
