The House of Commons supported an earlier bill at second reading in October; but rejected the Prime Minister`s plan to bring him down by Parliament within days, prompting him to push for parliamentary elections. The second newcomer will be Helena Morrissey, former CEO of the city and founder of the 30% Club, which defends the Uk`s boards of directors for gender equality. She`ll be a conservative. Charles Michel, President of the European Council, welcomed the vote and tweeted that it was an « important step in the process of ratifying Article 50 ». He added that « equal conditions of competition remain a must for all future relations. » He recalled the EU`s call for fair competition in exchange for a free trade agreement with zero tariffs and zero quotas. If passed, the bill would be an « extremely serious violation » of the withdrawal agreement and international law. This could be a big stumbling block for Members who are trying to organise or stop the withdrawal agreement after second reading. In 1972, while the House of Commons was considering the European Communities Act, Robert Grant-Ferris decided that the amendments to amend the treaty text were not correct. He called on the government to withdraw the law « by the end of the month, » adding that the withdrawal agreement contained « a number of mechanisms and remedies to remedy violations of the legal obligations contained in the text – which the European Union will not hesitate to use. » The bill proposed that the UK government be able to terminate the withdrawal agreement with the EU on trade between Britain and Northern Ireland. In the committee phase on the Floor of the Assembly, it will be up to Deputy Spokesperson Lindsay Hoyle, Chair of the Funds, to decide which amendments will be selected for the debate and which of them will be put to a vote. The main point of disagreement with the WAB will be whether the main objective of the law – the implementation of the withdrawal agreement – is the justification for not choosing certain changes. Some Members who do not like the WAB may decide to abstain, in the hope that they will be able to amend it in committee and report on it, and then make their final decision at third reading. But Mr Gove said: « I look forward to the second reading of the bill next week.
This is an opportunity for the government to explain in detail why we have this legislation. The bill was reintroduced immediately after the general election and was the first bill introduced in the House of Commons in the first session of the 58th Parliament with amendments to the previous bill by the re-elected government and was read for the first time on December 19, just after the first reading of the Outlawries Bill and before the start of the debate on the Queen`s Speech. The second reading took place on 20 December and the third reading on 9 January 2020. Read more: Will Boris Johnson sink the UK`s Brexit deal? Friday`s vote focused on the second reading of the law, in which MPs will vote on whether they were in principle ready to pass a bill. Changes can be made at later stages. The bill passed at second reading with 358 votes against 234 leaving the UK through the courts to leave the EU by the end of January. The bill described by The Independent as a government « incision » on Conservative rebels would have allowed MPs to review and amend each « line-by-line » agreement.  Conservative MP Steve Baker wrote to The Times stating that the new bill « gives any agreement that we have a good reputation with the EU in British law » and that it is compatible with the referendum result of « giving more control over how we are governed by the British Parliament. »  There has already been a great deal of controversy over Part 5, which gives ministers the power to apply the rules that came into force a few months ago in the EU`s trade withdrawal agreement
