European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

Lords approve EU (Withdrawal) Bill amendments setting conditions for approval of Brexit deal

On the fourth day of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill Lords Report Stage, Members of the House of Lords voted in favour of several amendments to clause 9 of the Bill, setting requirements for Parliament’s vote on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations and making the power to legislate in order to implement the withdrawal agreement subject to parliamentary approval of the negotiating mandate for the future UK-EU relationship. Members of the House of Lords voted against an amendment providing for the option of holding a further referendum on the final Brexit deal. While the government agreed that Parliamentary scrutiny is critical, it argued that Parliament should not be allowed to micromanage the Brexit negotiations.
