The House of Lords has backed a Brexit bill amendment requiring parliament to approve any exit deal that Britain makes with the EU, putting the government under further pressure to meet an end-of-March deadline to trigger Article 50.

The Act currently gives EU law supremacy over UK national law.

More than 400 amendments have been tabled to the EU Withdrawal Bill, which is designed to convert EU law into UK legislation by the end of March 2019.

The Government have been warned of potential rebellions during the bill's lengthy committee stage, with Conservative backbenchers having raised concerns about the use of so-called "Henry VIII" powers.

On Tuesday, prominent Remain-supporting Tories also focused their anger on an amendment tabled by the Government itself, which would include an EU exit date of 11pm on 29 March, 2019 within the legislation.

Ex-chancellor Ken Clarke branded the amendment "ridiculous and unnecessary", adding: "It could be positively harmful to the national interest."

Former attorney-general Dominic Grieve described the Government's action as "mad" as he vowed to vote against the "unacceptable" proposal.

Tory backbencher Anna Soubry could be heard branding her fellow Conservative MP Bernard Jenkin a "disgrace" as he told the House of Commons: "Any MPs who voted for Article 50 but then do not want to fix the date are open to the charge that they don't want us to leave the EU."

As MPs debated the EU Withdrawal Bill, the Prime Minister met with Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in Downing Street.

The SNP leader described her talks with Theresa May as "constructive and cordial" but repeated her view the EU Withdrawal Bill is unacceptable to the Scottish Government in its current form.

Both Scotland's and Wales' devolved governments have expressed fears the "power grab" legislation will return responsibilities from Brussels to London, rather than to their countries' administrations.

Ms Sturgeon said: "We oppose Brexit but we understand withdrawal legislation is necessary, so we want to find agreement.

"But I also made clear what our bottom lines are on that bill. "Discussions will continue and hopefully we can reach some points of agreement in the weeks to come."

The First Minister also branded the Government's exit date amendment, which won't be voted on by MPs until next month at the earliest, as not "sensible".
