They probably remember how much fun it was when their withdrawal agreement was hammered at every vote earlier this year Today`s vote means MPs have endorsed the general principles of the law and are now moving on to the so-called “committee phase”,” where a more detailed review takes place. Here is a guide to what happens next on Parliament`s website. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled “Agreement on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community”, is a treaty between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK), signed on 24 January 2020, which sets out the conditions for the United Kingdom`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom. The text of the treaty was signed on the 17th. October 2019 and is a renegotiated version of an agreement published six months earlier. The previous version of the Withdrawal Agreement was rejected three times by the House of Commons, leading Queen Elizabeth II to accept Theresa May`s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and to appoint Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister on 24 July 2019. The programme proposal was adopted by 353 votes to 243. Members` explanations after the vote: first part and second part And so on a vote on the proposed programme. This is where things went wrong for Boris Johnson last time. Spoiler: This won`t happen again. And Mr Johnson is now preparing to rush the final votes to legalise everything before Brexit Day on January 31, after which the UK will enter the post-Brexit transition period. .
