The most important elements of the draft agreement are: [21] On 20 December 2019, just after the opening of Parliament after the 2019 parliamentary elections (in which the Conservative Party won a large majority of 80 seats), the government introduced a new bill to ratify its draft withdrawal agreement. She also moved another guillotine motion to limit debate on the bill. The success of the Grieves amendment (by 321 votes to 299) means that MEPs can now amend this proposal,[65] giving them a much wider say on the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. [66] On 23 October, the House of Commons considered three technical provisions concerning the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. The legislative debate focused on the repeal of certain technical provisions enshrined in British law with regard to the EU. If these three acts were to be voted on, they would only come into force if the UK finally left the EU. The three points discussed related to changes to existing UK legislation to remove 1) THE EU`s free movement provisions[151][152] [152] 2) the UK`s regulatory oversight by third countries[153] 3) regarding EU-codified financial services. [154] All three amendments were put to a divisive vote and all three passed the vote in the House of Commons. [155] [156] [157] The Second (Amendment 12) removes the power of ministers to decide which jurisdictions may depart from the judgments of the European Court of Justice. MEPs voted against by 241 votes in favour and 205, which resulted in the amendment. In BBC Newsnight, Grieve said May had to respect the “assurances” given to her that Parliament would have more say in any final Brexit deal. [47] [48] There was a disagreement between the Conservatives on what had been agreed, and Anna Soubry, MP, said: “The Prime Minister said yesterday that clause c of Dominic Grieve`s amendment would be discussed as part of the new amendment to be tabled in the Lords”[49] and Stephen Hammond.

and we have said that very strongly today in government. The government has recognized this point, and I am waiting for a new amendment to cover this situation. [50] Section 13 of the 2018 Act required the government to submit a request for neutralization in response to the Prime Minister`s written statements of January 21-24 outs detailing her “Plan B.” In accordance with the “three-day amendment” to Dominic Grieve`s parliamentary calendar, this application was filed on 21 January (three days of session after the rejection of the draft withdrawal agreement by MEPs) and put to a vote on 29 January 2019. It was passed in the form of a resolution that the House of Commons had “thought about” the Prime Minister`s statements. This neutral proposal was amended and, prior to the vote on the main motion, the House of Commons voted on seven amendments proposed by Members and chosen by the spokesperson. [82] On 16 January, the British Parliament voted by 432 votes to 202 against May`s Brexit deal. In response to the result, European Council President Donald Tusk suggested that the only solution be for the UK to remain in the EU. Meanwhile, the British Labour Party has called for a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, his second leadership challenge in as many months. On the European Union side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2020[40] and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by e-mail on 30 January 2020. [42] That is why, on 30 January 2020, the European Union also tabled its instrument for ratifying the agreement, concluding the agreement[43] and allowing it to enter into force on the date of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU at 11 .m.
