BBC News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson bows to Conservative rebels with Brexit bill compromise – BBC News” – below is their description.
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.
