United Kingdom parliament to get vote on final Brexit deal

Nigel Farage and Michel Barnier

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

Labour MP Chuka Umunna, co-chair of the cross-party parliamentary group on European Union relations, said the move was "totally insufficient" and gave "no guarantee of a meaningful vote".

However, Davis admitted that if there is no deal agreed before the March 2019 exit date then there will be no withdrawal agreement bill and therefore nothing for MPs to vote.

Davis claims that by announcing the bill, the government was "providing clarity and certainty - both in the negotiations and at home - about the final agreement being put into United Kingdom law".

"This confirms that the major policy set out in the withdrawal agreement will be directly implemented into United Kingdom law by primary legislation, not by secondary legislation with the Withdrawal Bill".

Davis, along with Prime Minister Theresa May and most of the Conservative party's cabal of Brexiteers have resisted allowing such a final such Act of Parliament.

"Parliament could do nothing at all to shape the nature of that withdrawal agreement".

The UK's Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has told the House of Commons that issues like transition arrangements, the final divorce amount and citizens' rights terms, will need the new legislation to become law.

Pro-EU MPs within the Conservative party are confident of a rebellion by up to 10 MPs, which could mean a major defeat for the government.

Former attorney-general Dominic Grieve, who brought the amendment, has revealed he and other Conservative MPs have recently been in talks with Downing Street over the legislation.

"Today (Tuesday) the misnamed EU Withdrawal Bill came back to Parliament".

The British Parliament is to be given a take-it-or leave-it vote on the final Brexit deal before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU).

Heidi Allen said Mr Davis's attempt at a concession was "pointless" as the Government is trying to amend the Withdrawal Bill to say Britain's membership of the European Union will formally end at 11pm GMT on March 29 2019.

Labour's Chuka Umunna said on Twitter that Davis' concession was "totally insufficient: he gave no guarantee of a meaningful vote before 29 March 2019 and this doesn't cover the event of there being no deal".
