UK's May says Lords must respect people's will on Brexit

As I have said so many times before, in Your Lordships House, and publicly we will not block, wreck or sabotage the legislation before us.

Peers in the House of Lords are set to debate a proposed law that would allow Prime Minister Theresa May to inform the European Union (EU) that the United Kingdom is exiting, according to BBC News.

But former Labour minister, Lord Peter Hain will tell the chamber: "Critics say 'what right have I, an unelected peer, to oppose this bill or even to seek radically to amend it?"

"As we have seen with the Dubs amendment, we can't always rely just on what the government says".

Northbrook company's muscular dystrophy drug wins FDA approval
Duchenne's, a devastating muscle-wasting disease, affects some 15,000 patients in the United States, mostly young boys. By week 52, patients in the Emflaza group maintained an overall stability in average muscle strength.

Around 190 peers are expected to speak during the two days allocated for the bills second reading debate in the Lords. What we're saying is sign up to Open Britain, give us some money and help us campaign against this Brexit at all costs.

"Properly there will be debate and scrutiny in the House of Lords, but I don't want to see anybody holding up what the British people want, what the people of Stoke-on-Trent voted for previous year, which is for us to deliver Brexit, to leave the European Union".

Pro-EU Lord Mandelson, referring to the outcome of the Brexit talks, said: " We're going to have less trade, we're going to be paying through the nose for it and, broadly speaking, we're going to have the same number of immigrants coming to the country as well.

Speaking to BBC Radio's Today program Monday, Jonathan Hill, who served as the financial stability commissioner in Brussels before his resignation previous year, said European negotiators "have to trust that what the prime minister says, what [Brexit secretary] David Davis says they can deliver on".

Lincoln have already beaten Guiseley, Altrincham, Oldham, Ipswich Town and Brighton and Hove Albion in this season competition. Raggett connected with a corner at the back post to head the ball into the goal in front of the Imps fans.

The legislation, which will pave the way for the PM to trigger Article 50 of the European Union treaties to formally begin Brexit, was passed unamended and by large majority of 372 MPs. "I fully expect the House of Lords will recognise the will of the people and the House of Commons".

"We need them to fill jobs in our economies". During this stage any amendments will by discussed and may be voted on.

"The British people have voted for that and was clear in the referendum".

Opposition peers were warned against snarling up the Brexit process by Justice Secretary Liz Truss, who told Lord Mandelson to "move on" and refused to rule out using the Parliament Act to override the Lords and force legislation through.
