1:02 pm
to the bbc news at one. there have been angry scenes in parliament in the last hour as the snp‘s westminster leader was ordered from the house of commons by the speaker. the snp‘s other mps then walked out of the chamber in a row about the way scotland has been treated in the brexit process. it comes as theresa may remains under pressure over key brexit votes and how much say mps will have in any final brexit deal. our political correspondent jonathan blake has this report on the day's events. can you really please both sides, prime minister? she is trying to keep everyone happy but how much much did theresa may promise and can she keep her word? jeremy corbyn accused the prime minister of
1:03 pm
reneging on a deal with heroin backbenchers on how much they parliament should have on a brexit deal with brussels. —— her own backbenchers. how much damage will the prime minister do to this country before she realises the important thing is to get a deal for the people of this country, not one to appease the giant clashing egos of her cabinet. not one to appease the giant clashing egos of her cabinetm not one to appease the giant clashing egos of her cabinet. it is the labour party in opposition who are trying to frustrate brexit. it is the labour party who are trying to stop us getting a deal for the british people. this will delete macro government will deliver an brexit. this government will deliver onjobs. this brexit. this government will deliver on jobs. this government will deliver a brexit for britain. the government has enough obstacles to avoid at the moment, but the minister in charge laughed off questions about the deal which may or may not have been done. those keen for parliament to have more say
1:04 pm
and those who want to get on with brexit both played as a question of trust. the prime minister is clear we should trust our and we do. we did not have a chance because as everin did not have a chance because as ever in westminster these things came down to the wire 15 minutes before the vote to go through the wedding in detail. it is notjust relying on assurances given in the house of commons chamber, this is about understanding our concerns and building them into the amendment. there is some confusion about what confession concessions may have been given to the rebels. i have spoken since the vote with the secretary of state, the brexit minister mr baker, and the whip and their version of what concessions have been given to the potential rebels is somewhat different than what is appearing at the moment. how to keep both sides happy? time is short to come up with
1:05 pm
a solution that gives enough ground to those threatening to rebel and does not upset those keen on a speedy brexit. today brought more brexit related drama in parliament. the reality of the situation is that powers enshrined under the scotland act 1998 are being grabbed back... ian blackford was thrown out after repeatedly challenging the speaker to allow an emergency debate on devolved powers. chaos in the commons briefly. the prime minister stuck to her line. i cannot countenance parliament being able to overturn the will of the british people. parliament gave the decision to the british people. the british people voted to leave the european union and as prime minister i am determined to deliver that. yesterday's near miss for the government showed again how divisions over brexit for the conservative party, within parliament and within government will mean difficult and delicate decisions at every stage. our assistant political editor
1:06 pm
norman smith is in westminster. he was watching those extraordinary scenes at prime minister's questions. i guess we take from all of this, this is still a prime minister hugely under pressure here? as if mrs may did not have enough on how plate here at westminster over brexit, now an entirely new headache in the form of the snp pledge in this lunchtime to adopt a much more aggressive opposition to brexit. this on the morning that mrs may was already involved in a stand—off with some of her pro—remain rebels over what she did or did not promise, with warnings from them that unless she delivers an a compromise of a meaningful vote, then they will defeat her when the issue comes back to the commons. then again this lunchtime those extraordinary scenes when pmqs was pretty much brought to a standstill after the snp's leader demand that the commons go into a
1:07 pm
private session because of what he called the democratic outrage by the power grab of westminster over brexit, also attacking what he called the disrespect is the machine to scotland that during the fact of yesterday's explosive debate, only 15 minutes will set aside for considering devolution and scotland. mr blackford said he would now be fighting all the way the government's plans an brexit. you sense when it comes to theresa may and brexit, it never rains but it pours. she is having to deal with rebels in her own party, she is having to deal with the european commission, she's having to deal with cabinet ministers speaking out, now she has the additional headache of the snp on the rampage. thank you. the government may have seen off a commons defeat on the eu withdrawal bill, but there's still a long way to go to the end of the brexit process. chris morris from our reality check team has been looking at the next steps.
1:08 pm
the eu withdrawal bill is the domestic legislation that will formalise the uk's exit from the european union. repealing the laws took us into the eu in the first place, and turning a lot of current eu law into british law, so it is an important part of the brexit process but it is by no means the only one. as the clock continues to tick towards the day brexit is supposed towards the day brexit is supposed to happen, march 29,2019, towards the day brexit is supposed to happen, march 29, 2019, alongside the withdrawal bill in parliament, the withdrawal bill in parliament, the government is also trying to negotiate a withdrawal agreement with the rest of the eu. at the end of this month there will be an important eu summit in brussels. it will highlight the fact that the withdrawal agreement is unresolved. notably, the irish border, and the continuing search for a solution which will avoid any kind of border checks in the future. critics say it cannot be done if you leave the single market and the customs union,
1:09 pm
but the government insists we are leaving both. the overall withdrawal deal will need to be ratified before brexit, not just by deal will need to be ratified before brexit, notjust by the uk parliament, which will enact an impairment bill to enshrine the law, but by the european parliament as well. then there are questions on the future relationship with the eu which have barely begun. they will involve discussion of a new trade partnership, foreign policy and more. by october ideally, the eu hopes to finalise a political declaration on the broad terms of a future deal, with detailed negotiation continuing in the transition period after brexit, and probably after that as well. then the government has to find a way to ensure that hundreds of treaties eu has signed with other countries around the world continue to apply to the uk after brexit. if that is not enough to be getting on with, there is also the new legislation that the government needs to replace
1:10 pm
policies that used to be run largely by the eu. that means new bills on for example trade, customs, immigration, agriculture and fisheries. all of those new laws and processes will need to be in place by december 2020 when the proposed transition or implementation period is due to come to an end. in other words, there is an awful lot to do and it has to be done by government without an overall majority in parliament. it is not surprising that tempers are sometimes frying and lots of people are calling for greater certainty. chris morris there. president trump says north korea no longer poses a nuclear threat — and is no longer america's most dangerous problem. he tweeted the comments this morning on his return from his meeting with kimjong un in singapore. the us secretary of state mike pompeo is now in seoul — to explain the agreement to south korea. there is flash photography in this report from jon donnison. north korean state television.
1:11 pm
and this morning the woman they call the pink lady had some triumphant news. the united states, she said, had agreed to stop joint military exercises with south korea and also lift sanctions. in the official agreement signed in singapore there was no mention of either of those concessions. president trump has since said he is not ready to lift sanctions yet. but he later confirmed yesterday's somewhat out of the blue announcement that the so—called war games, joint military exercises with south korea, would be ending. we're not going to be doing the war games as long as we are negotiating in good faith. so that is good for a number of reasons, in addition to which, we save a tremendous amount of money. you know, those things, the cost... i hate to sound like a pure businessman. these are the joint military exercises he is talking about. news that they would be ending was apparently a surprise
1:12 pm
to the south koreans, the us military, and even reportedly, many of those in the travelling american delegation. japan, another key ally, was taken aback. translation: none of the details have been decided but we believe the us—south korean military drills are vital for the security of north east asia. the us secretary of state mike pompeo has now arrived in south korea to try and thrash out some of the details. but on this crucial issue of denuclearisation itself, much remains unclear. any negotiation with north korea on these issues is going to be enormously complex, very protracted, would require north korea to consent to an inspections regime within north korea that north korea has never allowed. but arriving back in the united states a short
1:13 pm
while ago, president trump was declaring job done. there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea, he tweeted. before signing off, sleep well tonight. jon donnison, bbc news. robin brant is in the south korean capital seoul. robin, there is a lot of concern in seoul about a lot of what president trump had to announce. there is some serious work to be done there now? yes, there is. particularly on the issue of thejoint yes, there is. particularly on the issue of the joint military exercises. it is difficult to understand how important they are here. you are watching it sitting in the comfort of your home or round the comfort of your home or round the world, these exercises happen twice a year. for people in the south they are raced show of strength to the north and a reminder of the military alliance between the us and south korea. president trump wants to stop them,
1:14 pm
mainly because they cost too much and because they are provocative. the south korean political leadership did not know that was coming. make no mistake, this country's president is very much on board. he has praised donald trump's decisive powerful leadership. mike pompeo, america's secretary of state comes here with work to do in terms of selling this deal, explaining to south korea what is part of it and also what is the next step. on that week from donald trump, north korea no longer poses a nuclear threat, thatis no longer poses a nuclear threat, that is an assertion which lacks credibility when you look at the agreements signed yesterday. north korea retains its devices, retains its missiles and has not signed up to any process to get rid of them. thank you. dixons carphone has admitted a huge data breach, involving nearly six million payment cards. the company says it's investigating the hack, but that it has no evidence that any of the affected cards had been used fraudulently.
1:15 pm
our technology correspondent rory cellan—jones is here. this sounds like a huge number. how embarrassing is this? it is embarrassing. it seems like the attack on dixons started injuly last year but it is only last week they uncovered it. they think the hackers may have obtained details to 5.9 million payment cards used in carriers pc world and dixons travel stores. nearly all of them, 5.8 million of them were chip and pin cards and those systems have not been breached. there were 105,000 cards, mainly from americans using them in stores which were not protected by chip and pin. the company says no evidence to date of fraud there. and separately there we re fraud there. and separately there were1.2 fraud there. and separately there were 1.2 million personal data records, not payment information but things like name, address and e—mail address. that information can be
1:16 pm
useful in things like attacks where they try and get information through e—mails. this is embarrassing for the company. systems are shown to be vulnerable. there was a situation when carphone warehouse was fined £400,000 for when carphone warehouse was fined £a00,000 for a previous data breach and the regulator is already looking at this and could be pretty stern. thank you. the three—year conflict in yemen has led to the death of thousands of people and caused humanitarian misery for millions. now, the saudi—led coalition has launched an assault on yemen's biggest port, hudaida — the main entry point for the food aid which is vital for more than 7 million people. our middle east correspondent martin patience is in beirut. explain the ramifications of this because the vast majority of food aid goes through here? that is right
1:17 pm
and that is the big fear, the aid agencies warning it could make a catastrophic humanitarian situation as they describe it even worse because it is notjust about the half—million people living inside that port city but about the country asa that port city but about the country as a whole. hudaida is a lifeline to yemen and where millions are on the brink of starvation and that has been caused by three years of civil war. saudi arabia and its allies, they believed that those fears are overblown despite calls from the un and international community to hold off on this assault, they pushed ahead to try to retake the port from the rebels. they say those rebels are using the port to smuggle weapons in from iran and some of those weapons have been fired into saudi arabia. that has been denied by the rebels but ultimately saudi arabia and its allies are describing this is potentially a turning point in the conflict which will break the
1:18 pm
stalemate of three years of war and perhaps forced the rebels to the negotiating table. martin, thank you. our top story this lunchtime. angry scenes in the house of commons this lunchtime — as the brexit debate heats up — snp mps leave the chamber. and still to come. new world order — usa, canada and mexico win the right to jointly stage the 2026 world cup. coming up on bbc news. a joint bid from the united states, mexico and canada coming up on bbc news, a joint bid from the united states, mexico and canada has won the right to stage the world cup in 2026, beating morocco with 67% of the vote. tomorrow marks one year since the grenfell tower fire — the most deadly blaze in the uk since the second world war. it killed 72 people, and left hundreds homeless. 12 months on, 69 households remain
1:19 pm
in emergency accommodation. one of those families is the rasouls — a mother and father, two young children, and their disabled grandfather. our correspondent matthew price spent the day with them to find out what their life is like now. a year to the day after the fire and little zara is still waking in a hotel bed. her brother and she have spent 12 months of their young lives crammed in a room with their parents. i've got a big belly, i know. putting on weight in here. no kitchen table, no kitchen. they are in the minions bag. you might wonder why they are still here. they asked to be rehoused close to the tower, a home on the ground floor, suitable for zara's disabled grandfather, who has dementia. he lives with them in an adjoining room.
1:20 pm
he signed the original tenancy agreement for their grenfell flat. but his illness means he can't sign a new lease. it has slowed the whole process. they have been told their new home won't be ready until november. we thought it would be just maybe a few weeks or a few days. but days turned into weeks and, soon it will happen, soon it will happen. and then weeks turned into months and obviously months have turned into a year now. yeah. a third of the grenfell families are still in hotels. most have found permanent homes, but moving in has been delayed for so many bureaucratic reasons. so the morning commute takes them out through reception to the school drop—off. and sometimes, to the remains of the tower in which mohammed rasoul was born.
1:21 pm
it has all been a struggle. you know. these people, bereaved or survivors, you know, they are already traumatised. people that have lost family have already had to grieve in a completely abnormal way. you know, having to have their loved ones returned to them in pieces, in fragments, burnt fragments in most cases. and then to bury them months down the line and you know, some families were buried in a single grave. this group of people are having to deal with all this kind of pressure on their shoulders and still have to fight to get the truth out, to get basic rights met. it shouldn't be like that. no way. it's not fair at all. nearby at the local mosque mounira, mohammed's wife, spends most of her afternoons. they opened up the kitchen here to give the people of grenfell somewhere
1:22 pm
to cook for their families. but still the pressure shows. life is not back to normal and we don't know when it will be back to normal. but again, we're fine. we breathe, we eat, we sleep. and that's it. life has to go on. when the kids question you, you answer. if you can't, just turn around. hide and start crying. for now then, they are left with the daily walk back along the hotel corridor. 365 days and counting. waiting for a new place to live. and thinking of the 72 who will never return home. matthew price, bbc news, north kensington. a plumber has won a legal battle at the supreme court —
1:23 pm
where five justices unanimously decided that he should have been treated as a worker with employment rights. gary smith worked solely for pimlico plumbers for six years, and claimed he was unfairly dismissed after trying to reduce his hours following a heart attack. our business correspondent simon gompertz reports. the boss of pimlico plumbers arrived at the supreme court in his bentley, charlie mullins keen to show how much money plumbers can make. his point that the ones who provide his plumbing service can earn more than £100,000 a year. by operating as independent contractors, as free agents. but the plumbers, the court decided, did not have the option of sending any substitute to do jobs. they drove company liveried band and wore uniforms. it meant that pimlico plumbers was not there customer or client in a normal traders sense, it was an employer. the ruling after a seven—year battle is vindication for gary smith,
