Yesterday, Ministers saw off a Tory rebellion over how the EU (Withdrawal) Bill transposes rights (and in particular the Charter of Fundamental Rights) by agreeing to discuss with potential rebels the Govt's own amendment, to be brought forward later in the Bill's passage.
That was enough to satisfy Dominic Grieve, who didn't push his own amendment to a vote, but not Ken Clarke, who indicated he may still vote for an amendment to secure that rights could continue to form the basis of legal challenges. Has Grieve been bought off too easily?
I looked at this particular issue in some detail here https://www.bdb-law.co.uk/blogs/great-repeal-bill/23-great-repeal-bill-just-wrote-letter/ after an earlier Parliamentary exchange on the issue.
Ministers have sought to see off a potential rebellion by Conservative MPs that could have brought a first defeat over the EU withdrawal bill by partially backing down on the future status of EU human rights measures in UK law. The government faced possible defeat over amendments intended to maintain the scope of the EU charter on fundamental rights. Several of the amendments were tabled by Dominic Grieve, the Tory former attorney general and a leading Brexit rebel, with speculation that enough of his fellow Tories would back some of these to inflict defeat. However, the solicitor general, Robert Buckland, said the government was willing to work with Grieve to see how rights under the charter could be kept after Brexit, and would introduce its own amendment to this effect later in the bill’s passage.
