Allow parliament to vote on the final EU withdrawal deal

The final agreement will be subject to a vote in both houses of parliament.

Our Verdict

Since Brexit was triggered, the government faced pressure to include a meaningful vote for MPs on the final deal. As a result, on the 13th December 2017 a clause was introduced to the EU Withdrawal Bill confirming there would be a vote in Parliament on the final Brexit agreement.

And the vote happened! On 15th January 2019, MPs voted to reject the government’s deal on Brexit. It was quite a day. Subsequent attempts to get the deal through were also rejected in a parliamentary vote, so there is enough grounds to say this promise has been met. We will continue to monitor this promise against any further attempts to agree a deal with the EU before the extended deadline of 31st October, 2019. Follow this policy for updates.
