Withdrawal Agreement Vote 29 March

But despite the prime minister winning former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, some Brexiteers still refuse to vote for the deal. On 27 February 2019, the House of Commons passed a amendable motion: “Let this House take note of the Prime Minister`s statement on the withdrawal from the European Union on 26 February 2019; also notes that discussions between the UK and the EU are ongoing. But it will not be just a third “wise vote” on the deal, as it will not include a vote on the UK`s future relationship with the EU. On December 4, 2018, the government submitted an industry request to set the timetable for the useful vote, as requested in S13 (1) (b), with the vote scheduled for December 11, 2018. [69] On the evening of 14 June 2018, Viscount Hailsham, who proposed the original amendment for a judicious vote, presented the Grieve Amendment in its entirety in the Lords under its own name. [30] [57] Before the amendment, Grieve said before the amendment to the Lords: “The alternative is that we must all now sign a clause on slavery that says, “Whatever the government does when it comes to January, as disastrous as it may be for my constituents and for my country, I am now signing that I am going to follow the edge of the cliff. and that, I can tell you, I`m not ready to do it. In his speech in the same programme, the Attorney General, Conservative MP Robert Buckland, replied: “If you were Michel Barnier and you look at them in the negotiations and they look to the future, he will give him a bit of a say if he knows that whatever the British government can tell him now, he knows that there is finally a third party in this relationship.” It is Parliament that is getting involved and surpassing what the British government is saying. This is not a good place for David Davis. David Davis must be able to go there and have a firm hand in the negotiation… [58] Mrs May must win 75 rebels to overturn the 149 votes rejecting her agreement on 13 March.

One Labour MP (Paul Flynn, absent due to prolonged illness), abstained,[78] the seven Sinn-Féin MPs who have an abstention policy, and eight others: spokesman John Bercow, Deputy Spokesperson Eleanor Laing (Conservative), Lindsay Hoyle (labour) and Rosie Winterton (work); Moreover, the voices of the narrators are not taken into account (for the Ayes, Wendy Morton and Iain Stewart, both Conservatives, and for the Noes, Vicky Foxcroft and Nick Smith, both Labor). [79] [80] In the 2019 revisions, elements of the political statement were also adapted, replacing the word “appropriate” with “appropriate” with respect to labour standards.
