On 15 January 2019, the House of Commons voted with 230 votes against the Brexit withdrawal agreement[10] the largest vote against the British government in history. [31] The government may survived a vote of confidence the next day. [10] On March 12, 2019, the House of Commons voted 149 votes against the agreement, the fourth-biggest defeat of the government in the history of the House of Commons. [32] A third vote on the Brexit withdrawal agreement, widely expected on 19 March 2019, was rejected by the House of Commons spokesman on 18 March 2019, on the basis of a parliamentary convention of 2 April 1604, which prevented British governments from forcing the House of Commons to vote several times on a subject already voted on by the House of Commons. [34] [35] [36] An abbreviated version of the withdrawal agreement, in which the annex political statement had been withdrawn, consisted of the test of “substantial amendments,” so that a third vote was held on 29 March 2019, but was rejected by 58 votes. [37] To this end, in the publication published today by the Canada Gazette, Part I (154, No. 5 of February 1, 2020), of the Canada Agreement, the Minister of Foreign Affairs issued, by decision of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, a communication “continuing to interpret the agreements with the European Union as if the United Kingdom were still a member state of the European Union during the transition period. “in the sense of the withdrawal agreement.” This means that, during the transition period, Canada will maintain its relationship with the United Kingdom as if it were an EU member state within the meaning of the WTO agreements, the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and other bilateral, regional and multilateral agreements involving both Canada and the EU. The reception of the agreement in the House of Commons ranged from cold to hostile, and the vote was delayed by more than a month. Prime Minister May has received a motion of no confidence within her own party, but the EU has refused to accept further changes.

The UK has launched the formal process of withdrawal negotiations by formally announcing the European Council`s intention to leave the EU. Immediately after the announcement of a revised withdrawal agreement on October 17, 2019, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the DUP said they could not support the new agreement. [30] On Friday 31 January 2020, at midnight Central European time, the United Kingdom will formally withdraw from the European Union.
