G. whereas, at the end of the transitional period under the withdrawal agreement, UK citizens no longer enjoy their rights under Article 20 of the FUE Treaty, in particular the right to free movement, unless the EU and the United Kingdom agree otherwise in an agreement on future relations between them; – in view of the joint report by EU and UK government negotiators on 8 December 2017 on progress made in the first phase of the EU Article 50 negotiations on the UK`s orderly withdrawal from the European Union, A. whereas the European Parliament represents all citizens of the European Union (EU) and will act and act both before and after the UK withdraws from the European Union to protect their interests; The option of parliamentary elections is currently being considered, but it seems that the government is waiting to see what the outcome of discussions between EU Member States on the duration of the extension offer is. If it is a brief technical expansion, perhaps we can expect a more generous program request. If it is a three-month extension, as the Benn-Burt Act has called for, we may be heading for a winter election, after which this bill will return to a new Parliament. This went to a second reading, during which the program application was rejected. It is only when the bill has successfully negotiated all these steps that the United Kingdom will be formally able to ratify a withdrawal treaty with the European Union. The amendment was adopted by 322 votes to 306. On Monday, the government again tried to bring a sensible vote, which the spokesman described as messy, on the grounds that a „substance” motion on the merits cannot be brought back in a single parliamentary session (the same rule prevented Theresa May from reporting her agreement). That would have been very unsatisfactory for a bill of such constitutional importance. In fact, the Wild Animals in Circuses Act 2019 would have received the same review in the House of Commons as proposed for the withdrawal agreement. To continue rubbing the salt, the bill was not published until Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. – 5 p.m.
only before the start of the second reading debate and about 24 hours before the scheduled start of the committee period.
