Brexit: MPs to vote on implementation bill in early June

Brexit: MPs to vote on implementation bill in early June

(UTV|COLOMBO) – MPs will be asked to vote on Brexit again in early June whether or not the government and Labour have reached a deal, reportedly.

A spokesman said a vote on the bill that would pave the way for Brexit was “imperative” if the UK was to leave the EU before MPs’ summer recess.

However, this would not amount to a fourth so-called meaningful vote on the PM’s Withdrawal Agreement itself.

Labour sources say they will not back the bill without a cross-party deal.

Attempts to find a cross-party compromise began after the PM’s Brexit deal was rejected three times by MPs.

BBC political correspondent Iain Watson said bringing Withdrawal Agreement Bill forward would allow the prime minister to push ahead with her ambition of delivering Brexit before the summer, despite the lack of agreement so far in the cross-party talks.

He added that the proposed timetable nevertheless would allow “more space and more time” for the talks to continue.
