After years of political disagreement and drama, the British Parliament has adopted a comprehensive agreement to withdraw from the EU. Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to sever all ties with the bloc, writes Barbara Wesel of the DW. (20.12.2019) The second useful vote took place on 12 March 2019.  The agreement was backed by 235 Conservative MPs, four independent MPs and Labour MPs Kevin Barron, Caroline Flint and John Mann and rejected by the other MPs, including the DUP`s 10 MPs and 75 Conservative MPs.  A Conservative MP, Douglas Ross, was unable to choose or exercise his voting rights because of the birth of his child on the day of the vote.   This is the BBC political correspondent Iain Watson. He says up to 30 Labour MPs abstained from voting on the Brexit bill this afternoon or did not abstain. On Thursday evening, the member of the House of Commons ratified the government`s withdrawal agreement by 330 votes to 231. After ratification by the British Parliament was concluded today with the royal approval of the European Union Withdrawal Agreement Act (withdrawal agreement), MEPs on the Constitutional Affairs Committee voted 23 in favour, 3 against and no abstention in favour of a positive recommendation on the EU-UK withdrawal agreement.
On the weekend before the amendment was voted on in the House of Commons, the leaders of the United Nations Group on Relations with the European Union signed a statement saying: “Members of all parties have already given valuable control to the EU withdrawal law and we have forced the government to make some concessions. But it won`t matter if we can`t really vote on the withdrawal agreement that the government is negotiating with the European Union.    In the BBC Newsnight, Grieve said that May had to respect the “assurances” given to her that Parliament would have a greater say in any final Brexit deal.   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” 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.  Standing Order No. 24B says, “Where, according to the spokesperson… A movement… In neutral terms, no amendments can be tabled on this subject.  The Grieves amendment does not apply this permanent decision to any request made as part of the meaningful vote of the Act that would amend any request for the withdrawal process by Parliament.
 If the UK does not ask for an extension beyond 2020, trade relations will be governed by any agreement or World Trade Organization rules from the beginning of 2021.
