Dominic Grieve has clashed with the government over the final wording of the European Union Withdrawal Bill in a move that is testing Prime Minister Theresa May's ability to lead a minority government.
"It has been suggested that I want to collapse the government — I don't. If we have no deal at the end it is a very serious crisis," Grieve said.
Members of the Conservative Party have "privately" notified they could try to force PM May out of office if the government is defeated in a parliamentary vote, according to Bloomberg.
Grieve warned on June 17 that he'd oppose a hard Brexit even if it would lead to the "collapse" of the British government.
The UK initiated the process of withdrawing from the European Union after a referendum in June 2016.
The formal divorce is to happen in March 2019, but for now, the British government is negotiating the terms of the separation with the EU.
