At the end of the debate, the government assured potential Conservative rebels that they would raise their concerns in a new amendment that the Lords should consider. The concession proposed by ministers is also expected to introduce a new parliamentary motion if the Brexit deal is rejected by MPs and colleagues that would open the door for MPs to take control of the negotiations if ministers fail to reach an agreement in Brussels.  The concession meant that the government had obtained 324 votes to 298, a majority of 26 votes.  Permanent provision 24B says, “Where, according to the spokesperson… A movement… In neutral terms, no amendments can be tabled on this subject.  The Grieves amendment does not apply this permanent decision to any request made as part of the meaningful vote of the Act that would amend any request for the withdrawal process by Parliament.  This bill aims to implement the agreement between the UK and the EU, in accordance with Article 50, paragraph 2, of the Treaty on the European Union, which sets out the terms of the UK`s exit from the EU. On 21 October, the government published the withdrawal agreement and proposed three days of debate for opposition members to review it.  The government introduced the recently revised EU Withdrawal Act in the House of Commons for debate on the evening of 22 October 2019.  MEPs voted in favour of a second reading, adopted by 329 votes to 299, and the timetable for debate on the law, which was rejected by 322 votes to 308.
Prior to the vote, Johnson had said that he would abandon attempts to pass the agreement and would seek to hold parliamentary elections if his timetable did not generate the necessary support for its adoption by Parliament. After the vote, Mr Johnson announced that the law would be overturned while he held talks with other EU leaders.  As the positions of the political parties were not expected to have been significantly changed, the government was defeated by 432 votes to 202 in the 15 January vote. The 230-vote lead was the worst for a government in the modern history of Parliament.  196 Conservative MPs, 3 Labour MPs and 3 independent MPs supported the agreement. The deal was voted against 118 Conservative MPs, 248 Labour MPs, 35 SNP MPs, 11 Liberal Democrats, 10 DUP MPs, 4 Plaid Cymru MPs, the only Green MP and five independent MPs.  In the evening, Grieve`s amendment was passed by 309 votes to 305 , a majority of 4, was a defeat for the government.  Twelve Conservative MPs voted against the government: Grieve, Soubry, Heidi Allen, Kenneth Clarke, Jonathan Djanogly, Stephen Hammond, Oliver Heald, Nicky Morgan, Bob Neill, Antoinette Sandbach, John Stevenson and Sarah Wollaston.
A month earlier, everyone except Stevenson made the front page of the Daily Telegraph, with Conservative MPs Vicky Ford, Jeremy Lefroy, Paul Masterton and Tom Tugendhat calling them “The Brexit Mutineers.”  During Friday`s debate, Mr Corbyn acknowledged that voters had indicated that they wanted to end the Brexit impasse and said the Labour Party would “respect that decision and continue.” It was also noted that Holby City Episode A Simple Lie Part 1 on BBC One was delayed for a week to cover the vote. The day after the vote, May told the Prime Minister`s questions in the House of Commons: “We have seen concerns about Parliament`s role in the Brexit process. What I agreed yesterday is that, since the bill is up to the Lords, we would continue to discuss these concerns with our colleagues.
