The government suffered a second Brexit defeat on Tuesday, as peers backed, by 366 votes to 268, calls for a "meaningful" parliamentary vote on the final terms of the UK's withdrawal from the EU. Ministers have said it was disappointing and they would seek to overturn the move when the bill returns to the Commons. The previous defeat in the bill was on the issue of guaranteeing the rights of EU citizens, which was voted on at committee stage. The bill authorises Theresa May to notify the EU of the UK's intention to leave and pave the way for official Brexit talks to begin. The turnout in the Lords for the vote was the largest since 1831, according to Parliament's website. A Liberal Democrat motion at third reading, aimed at blocking the bill from passing because it\ndoes not offer people another referendum on the Brexit deal, was rejected by 340\nvotes to 95, majority 245. The bill now returns to the Commons for the consideration of Lords amendments.
