British Brexit minister offers parliament new vote on any Brexit deal

David Davis

It matters because the decision is a big concession to the Tory rebels and Labour MPs who were threatening to vote against the government, in part, because of ministers' refusal to promise a new set of laws.

David Davis has agreed a separate bill to deal with the transition period, thwarting Labour and would-be Tory rebels before the EU Withdrawal Bill returns to the Commons. Asked whether Brexit would still go ahead if the bill was rejected, Davis simply said "yes" - meaning the country could leave the European Union without a deal in place, the cliff edge scenario feared by businesses across the country. Almost 200 amendments have been tabled for the Bill.

"I can now confirm that once we've reached an agreement we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that agreement", he told parliament.

"This confirms that the major policy set out in the withdrawal agreement will be directly implemented into United Kingdom law by primary legislation".

And he said MPs would have the opportunity to reject or amend such legislation, saying "the agreement will only hold if Parliament approves it".

But if they reject the deal the Government strikes with the EU, Britain will instead leave the bloc with no deal, he confirmed.

Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) Announces Quarterly Earnings Results
The 14-day RSI is now sitting at 37.00, the 7-day is at 33.19, and the 3-day is spotted at 23.60 for Newmont Mining Corp (NEM). During the recent trading sessions stock of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) was gathering the crowd in the stock market.

"For months, Labour has been calling on ministers to guarantee Parliament a final say on the withdrawal agreement", Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said.

"With less than 24 hours before they had to defend their flawed Bill to Parliament, they have finally backed down".

"Ministers must now go further".

Mr Davis said the talks were expected to move on to discussing a future free trade agreement "as soon as possible".

"A parliamentary vote simply isn't good enough", Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said.

And it matters because it demonstrates that the government was unlikely to be able to persuade enough of their own side to vote with them to keep the show on the road this week.
