Withdrawal Agreement Bill Second Reading Vote

MEPs voted on the government`s withdrawal agreement at second reading. With Boris Johnson`s majority of 80, the bill passed by a comfortable margin, with 358 votes in favour and 234 against. This is a good time to give another letter of explanation about what happens after the Brexit bill is billed. (Spoiler alert – Brexit won`t be over.) An earlier withdrawal agreement – reached between former Prime Minister Theresa May and the EU – was rejected three times by MPs. British lawmakers on Friday passed the revised Brexit law, which paves the way for an exit from the EU by January 31. The government said it would enact the bill in time for the Brexit date of January 31. The bill will return to the House of Commons after the committee phase for third reading, and will then be sent to the House of Lords before the Royal Grant is requested to become law before January 31. Described by The Independent as the government that “prays” to Conservative rebels, the bill, as originally conceived, would have allowed MPs to review each agreement “line by line” and make changes. [8] Conservative MP Steve Baker, who wrote for the Times, claimed that the new bill “gives an appropriate position in UK law to any deal we reach with the EU” and that it is consistent with the referendum result by “giving more control over how we govern the British Parliament”.

[9] The result of the Commons vote is expected around 14:30 GMT. After winning a Conservative majority in the election, the bill was revised and reintroduced on December 19, and passed second reading the next day. With the revision of the law in December, the provisions made in previous versions for parliamentary scrutiny of the Brexit negotiations have been removed. [10] What a difference a year makes: the Withdrawal Agreement Bill passes second reading 358 to 234 – loud cheers on the Conservative benches Kemi Badenoch (Conservative – Safran Walden) (Deputy Vote of Leo Docherty) On January 22, 2020, the Bill was passed by the House of Lords without further amendments. The next day, she received the royal zusächse. [14] [15] Today`s vote paves the way for Brexit by the end of January. The House of Lords, which must approve all laws, tends to pay particular attention to those aspects of bills that affect the rights and issues affecting the courts, the judiciary and political institutions of the United Kingdom. There are changes to the previous bill, which was backed by the House of Commons in October but withdrawn by the government after MPs rejected a three-day deadline for passage by Parliament. .
