PM Tries Again – Brexit. Was it meaningful Monday? Government says it has the numbers.
Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mog says the EU Withdrawal agreement Bill will be published shortly. The second reading of the Bill will be tomorrow (Tuesday October 22)
Commons Leader says plan is for Commons proceedings on EU Withdrawal agreement Bill to conclude on Thursday
House of Commons Speaker John Bercow turned down a government request to hold a “yes” or “no” vote on its Brexit deal. He made the decisision on the basis it was”repetitive and disorderly” to debate it again
Boris Johnson was forced by law to send a letter asking the EU for a new delay on Brexit. But did not sign it.
Mr Johnson reached a new deal with the EU last week, but it needs to be approved by the UK Parliament.
The deal ditches the backstop – the “insurance policy” designed to prevent a return to physical checks on the Irish border.
Instead it will, in effect, draw a new customs border in the Irish Sea, because goods which could then travel onwards to Ireland will have to pay a duty tax.
The whole of the UK will leave the EU customs union, meaning it could strike trade deals with other countries in the future.
The EU is now considering how to respond to the UK’s request for a delay, but has said Saturday’s developments did not mean that the deal had been rejected.
The UK is due to leave the EU in 10 days time.
