>> Theresa May's Brexit bill facing a tough test in the House of Lords on Monday. More than 190 speakers to have their say during a two-day debate. The bill is likely to go through, giving Theresa May the power to trigger the country's exit from the European Union. But Britain's unelected upper chamber could attach conditions.
Amendments aimed at giving EU citizens in Britain guaranteed rights post-Brexit, and calling to Parliament to have a vote on the final Brexit deal, expected to attract the most support. If the Lords succeed in attaching conditions to the bill, it will need to go back to the Commons for approval.
The legislation could then be passed back and forth between the upper and lower houses until they both agree.>> Say aye.>> Aye.>> May has said she plans to trigger Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty by the end of March. With two days of debate this week, and the government's lack of majority in the House of Lords, that timeline could be tested yet.
