Parliament to vote on Brexit deal

Parliament to vote on Brexit deal

Lawmakers from both main parties have been pushing for Parliament to have a greater say in the process, with some tabling amendments to government legislation that aim to prevent Britain tumbling out of the trading bloc without a deal.

Former Tory minister John Penrose said: "If they can agree to this level of Parliamentary scrutiny for the Act of Brexit then, logically, they should also be willing to accept limits on their Henry the Eighth powers, too".

Ministers are attempting to amend the Withdrawal Bill this week to spell out that Britain's membership of the European Union will formally end at 11pm GMT on March 29 2019.

"We would be able to make a good future for Britain without", he told a shocked Commons, although admitted: "It's not the best future".

"By announcing this bill, we are providing clarity and certainty - both in the negotiations and at home - about the final agreement being put into United Kingdom law".

"Once we've reached an agreement, we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that agreement", David said.

MPs will now be asked to consider a Withdrawal Agreement [and Implementation] Bill.

Its introduction had been delayed as ministers held talks with Tory critics, and Mr Davis will hope that his concession will take the sting out of any potential rebellion.

'This is a significant climbdown from a weak government on the verge of defeat. The timing is key here - but the government are unable to guarantee that it wouldn't be the day before Britain leaves as they can't say for sure when the negotiations will end.

In a bid to keep both Brexiteers and Remainers on side, Davis ended his appearance at the despatch box by describing the vote as "a meaningful vote, but not one that can undo Brexit". "Totally worthless to parliament, essentially trying to buy off people", Chris Leslie, a member of the opposition Labour Party and a pro-EU campaigner, said.

"It's a transparent and fairly desperate attempt at the eleventh hour to save face and avoid losing votes in the House".

But it puts MPs in an invidious position.

Reacting to the announcement, Ms Allen tweeted: "Pointless if we have enshrined a drop dead date in the Bill, & get a deal at 11th hour! There'd be no time!" she said.

Owen Paterson, a former Tory Cabinet minister and Eurosceptic, asked him: "If the House of Commons votes down the new Withdrawal Bill, will the outcome be we still leave on March 29, 2019 but without an agreement?"

What had ministers previously proposed?

Ms May's blueprint for Britain's exit from the European Union faces a crucial test starting on Tuesday (local time), when MPs will debate the European Union withdrawal bill that she says is crucial to give companies confidence the rules will not change after Brexit.
