Gasps were heard in the Lords after Dick Taverne addressed the chamber
Lord Taverne, who was once a Labour politician and who now represents the Liberal democrats, became a life peer in 1996.
He said: "I think that we are absolutely justified on this occasion for this amendment not to give way to the House of Commons because the House of Commons has now in effect abandoned the principal parliamentary democracy and has taken the view that the referendum verdict is sacrosanct and cannot be challenged and that is quite clear what the opinion of the Government is.
"Now what does that mean? It means that MPs are delegates and not representatives, it means that there is no point in parliamentary government considering the argument and debates, considering the evidence and the argument, they have to obey the will of the people and that is now the principal.

"It is a very dangerous step towards the doctrine that the people's will must always prevail.

"It is denial of the essence of democracy which we have supported and to great effect in this country and now we are abandoning it.
"My Lords we are the guardians of political, parliamentary democracy and we are right in this, we are right in this, we are the the democrats and we are right to support the democratic cause".
