On the voting lists, it seems that @UKLabour #shadowcabinet MPs @IanLaveryMP and @jon_trickett do not vote on Bill #brexit that the party has officially voted against opposition sources in the Lords, and I have said that they will vote overwhelmingly in favour of the “Dubs Amendment” and that they will be supported by a large number of new entrants and conservatives. Immediately after the announcement of a revised withdrawal agreement on October 17, 2019, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the DUP said they could not support the new agreement.  The 599-page withdrawal agreement covers the following main areas: In the 2016 referendum, the UK voted 52% to 48% in favour of leaving the EU. But the difficulties that followed in getting Brexit through Parliament led to a deadlock in Westminster. The 2019 revisions also adapted elements of the political declaration and replaced the word “appropriate” with “appropriate” with respect to labour standards. According to Sam Lowe, a trade fellow at the Centre for European Reform, the amendment excludes labour standards from dispute resolution mechanisms.  In addition, the Equal Competition Mechanism has been postponed from the legally binding withdrawal agreement to the political declaration, and the line of the political statement that “the United Kingdom will consider taking into account alignment with trade union rules in the relevant areas” has been removed.  The British Parliament approved the draft agreement by adopting 2020 implementing laws (The European Union Withdrawal Agreement (Withdrawal Agreement) 2020 Act. Following the signing of the agreement, the UK Government adopted and tabled the UK`s ratification instrument on 29 January 2020.  The agreement was ratified by the Council of the European Union on 30 January 2020, after approval by the European Parliament on 29 January 2020. The UK`s withdrawal from the EU came into force on 31 January 2020 at 11 .m GMT, when the withdrawal agreement came into force in accordance with Article 185. I would like to ask you for a brief explanation of today`s vote on the withdrawal agreement: pic.twitter.com/vkyG4wpTBw Members are now voting on the proposed programme which sets the timetable for the introduction of the law by Parliament before 31 January. Today`s vote means that Members have adopted the general principles of the legislation, and it will now move to the so-called “committee stage,” where further consideration will take place.
Here is a guide to the rest on the Parliament`s website. The second (Amendment 20) concerns the knowledge of the Sewel Convention, which guarantees that the British Parliament cannot legislate on decentralised issues without the agreement of the de decentralised legislator. MEPs voted by 239 votes in favour and 235 against, resulting in the amendment. Six Labour members voted for the bill – Sarah Champion, Rosie Cooper, Jon Cruddas, Emma Lewell-Buck, Grahame Morris, Toby Perkins. Here is Lewell-Buck`s speech, in which she says she decided with a heavy heart that she could not vote with the Labour Party. On the European Union side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2020 and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by e-mail on 30 January 2020.  That is why, on 30 January 2020, the European Union also tabled its instrument for ratification of the agreement, concluding the agreement and allowing it to enter into force on the date of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU on 31 January 2020, at 11 .m GMT. Parliament will then vote on whether to pass the third reading of the legislation and, when passed, will be addressed to the House of Lords for first reading. On 6 September 2020, the Financial Times reported that the UK government was considering drafting new laws to circumvent the protocol of the Northern Ireland Withdrawal Agreement.  The new law would give ministers the power to determine which state aid should be notified to the EU and to define which products at risk of being transferred from Northern Ireland to Ireland (the withdrawal agreement stipulates that in the absence of a reciprocal agreement, all products are considered vulnerable).
