Parliament is involved in a lively debate as the Government seeks to enshrine the Brexit date into UK law.
Labour and Conservative Remainers are hoping to change, delay and even thwart Britain’s divorce from the European Union, with numerous MPs voting against the Brexit bill.
After a heated Prime Ministers Questions session, Mrs May was asked by fellow Conservative to call for MPs to come together for the sake of Brexit.
Michael Tomlinson, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole, told the Prime Minister it is the “duty” of MPs to “scrutinise, debate, consider amendments” the EU Withdrawal Bill but without standing in the way of the referendum decision.

The Prime Minister replied: “My Honourable Friend is right, we will be leaving the European Union on March 29, 2019.
“And, there is, of course, a lively debate going on in this place, that’s right and proper and important.
“There are strong views held on different sides of the argument about the European Union on both sides of this house.
“What we are doing as a government is listening to the contributions being made, we are listening carefully to those who wish to improve the bill, and, I hope we can all come together to deliver on the decision the country took that we should leave the European Union.”
Both Mrs May and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn face Brexit rebellions from within their own parties.

And, Mr Corbyn had at least 21 MPs ignoring the Labour Party whip during votes to amend the EU Withdrawal Bill.
Nineteen Labour MPs were told to abstain but instead voted against the repealing of the European Communities Act 1972.
Three brave Labour Brexiteers defied the whip, however, decided to vote in favour of repealing the key legislation which paved the way for Britain to join the EU.
