What will Boris Johnson do if the House of Lords refuse his new Brexit Bill Because it breaks International law?

The upper chamber’s primary purpose is to debate and amend legislation. It does have the power to reject a bill, but the Parliament Act 1911 confirmed the House of Commons’ dominance over the second chamber when the Lords voted to reject the Liberal government’s 1909 People’s Budget. This broke the convention of opposing bills. The Conservatives will use this law to ensure that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill is approved by both chambers eventually.
