The Early Parliamentary General Election Act 2019 received Royal Assent on 31 October 2019, fixing a general election on 12 December 2019. Under the procedural rules, Parliament is dissolved just after midnight 25 working days before a general election. Parliament was dissolved on 6 November 2019, just three weeks and two days after the Queen’s Speech in October 2019. All parliamentary business, including all legislation in progress came to an end at that point.

As a result of the dissolution of the 2019 Parliament, the following Brexit Bill, which had not yet received Royal Assent, fell away namely:

  1. European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill 2019

Note: A number of Brexit Bills fell previously with the prorogation of the 2017–19 Parliament and had not yet been re-introduced following the Queen’s Speech in October 2019 (see below).
