Withdrawal Agreement Vote By Mp

During the debate, the government assured potential Conservative rebels that they would address their concerns in a new amendment that the Lords should consider. It was thought that the concession offered by the ministers would include a new parliamentary motion if the Brexit agreement was rejected by MPs and colleagues[3], which would open the door for MPs to take control of the negotiations if ministers in Brussels fail to reach an agreement. [45] The concession meant that the government received 324 votes to 298, a majority of 26. [3] [46] The House of Commons voted by 329 votes to 299 in favour of the Withdrawal Agreement, a major victory for the Prime Minister after months of negotiations with Brussels and its backbenchers. MPs also voted by 353 votes to 243 in favour of the government`s proposed timetable for the bill. After losing the third vote and the passage of the Cooper-Letwin Bill at third reading by a vote of 313 to 312, May and her cabinet considered the possibility of sending the withdrawal agreement back to Parliament for a fourth vote. [114] In mid-May, May said she would present the withdrawal agreement to Parliament in the first week of June. [115] Due to her strong opposition to the new deal, May postponed publication from May 24 to June 4 and subsequently resigned as prime minister. [116] The amendment tabled by Oliver Letwin passed by a vote of 329 to 302 and required the House of Commons to take a series of indicative votes on March 27. Three ministers resigned from the government to support change: Richard Harrington (Minister for the Economy), Alistair Burt (Federal Foreign Office) and Steve Brine (Health). Margaret Beckett`s Beckett amendment was rejected by 314 votes to 311. He reportedly called on Parliament to vote for a no-deal Brexit or to ask for an extension of Article 50 if the government had been without a deal within seven days of leaving the European Union.

The amended main motion (Letwin, but not Beckett) was adopted by 327 votes to 300. On 23rd October the House of Commons debated three technical texts on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. The legislative debate focused on the repeal of certain technical provisions in UK law as far as the EU is concerned. If the vote on these three laws were passed, they would only come into force if the UK finally left the EU. .
