The document’s approval process can start before Christmas
LONDON, 16 Dec. /TASS/. The bill on the implementation of the Brexit will be submitted for consideration by the new membership of the house of Commons of the British Parliament on Friday, December 20. This was stated on Monday the official representative of the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.”We plan to begin the process of approval of the bill on withdrawal from the EU before Christmas, it is planned to submit it to Parliament on Friday,” said an employee of the Prime Minister’s office, quoted by Reuters.
As said the representative of the Prime Minister, the British Cabinet was confident that after the implementation of Brexit the UK would be able quickly to negotiate with the EU on long-term economic cooperation. He confirmed that Johnson intends to sign EU trade agreement, which will be based on the same principles as concluded in 2016, the EU-Canada agreement.
In October, the bill of Brexit, including the text made by the Johnson agreement with the EU on the conditions of “divorce” was approved by the British Parliament in the second reading. However, after this, the deputies refused to continue the consideration of the bill under an accelerated procedure. As a result, the government of Johnson withdrew the document from consideration, was forced to ask the EU about the new delay Brexit (until 31 October) and has achieved early elections to the House of Commons.The house of Commons will begin work in its new composition on Tuesday, December 17. Members of the government, Johnson has repeatedly stated that it will try as soon as possible to approve in Parliament required to conduct Brexit laws. British political observers suggest that this can be reduced the time of the Christmas recess, and scheduled additional meetings on weekends.
