29 March. The government today is putting forward a motion to pass part of its withdrawal agreement with the EU, the withdrawal agreement, but not the political declaration. If this passes there will be an extension to exit day to 22 May in accordance with the agreement reached between the PM and the EU last week. If not, exit day will be 12 April unless a further extension is requested by the PM, whoever that may be. In the meantime Parliament votes again on indicative votes on Monday after the failure of any of the proposals put forward on Wednesday to obtain a majority.
MPs voted by 286 to 344 to reject the government’s withdrawal agreement.
9 April. The House of Commons has just approved the government motion that the Prime Minister requests an article 50 extension until 30 June. Leaders of the 27 EU Member States will consider the request tomorrow at the meeting of the Council of Ministers. If there is no unanimous agreement to extend article 50 then the UK leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement on Friday at 11pm.
