Tomorrow, MPs have only five hours to discuss and vote in the House of Commons on the Brexit deal.
Proceedings are scheduled to begin at about 9:30 a.m., with reports from Downing Street reporting that a vote is anticipated at approximately 2:30.
The bill, scheduled to be released today, will then be submitted to the House of Lords, where it is expected to be discussed and considered late into the night.
If accepted, on Wednesday or “very late” No.10 said, it will receive Royal Assent “possibly by Thursday morning,”
The treaty agreement itself will be signed tomorrow in Brussels by EU leaders before being flown out by the RAF for Boris Johnson’s signature.
The official spokesman for the Prime Minister said the international treaty will be signed by President Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission and President Charles Michel of the European Council before being flown across the channel.
The RAF aircraft will be accompanied by British and EU officials and the agreement is scheduled to be signed by the Prime Minister on Wednesday afternoon in Downing Street.
The SNP has already announced that it would vote against the agreement, leading to criticism that, thus, the group would prefer to accept the EU’s no-deal exit.
“In a radio interview yesterday, Ian Blackford MP, the Westminster leader of the party, dismissed that idea, saying, “We definitely don’t endorse No Deal. No Deal is anything for all of us that will be a tragedy.
The best deal we’ve got is the one we’ve got right now, where we’re both in the single market and the customs union. All the economic proof, even from the UK government, is that with this agreement, we will all be poorer.
SNP MPs announce that in the Commons referendum, they will oppose the Brexit agreement
After party leader Keir Starmer said his party would accept the agreement, the Labour Party is facing revolt from within its own ranks.
A number of influential members have signed a letter, including Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, urging Starmer not to accept the EU agreement.
“Some Labour MPs have expressed concern that Mr. Starmer indicated that before the legislation was even published there would be support for the agreement, but the leader said his party must support it because “it is not credible for Labour to be on the sidelines.
The declaration, coordinated by the left-wing groups Another Europe is Possible and Labor for a Socialist Europe, declared that it was the responsibility of the opposition to ensure adequate parliamentary oversight and to offer an alternative.
It says:’ As opposition parties fall into the pit of rallying behind this rotten deal, this mission becomes more complicated.
An act of vandalism against our livelihoods, our rights and our horizons is being witnessed.
“We call on Labour, the Labour movement and other opposition parties not to support the Tories’ Brexit deal when it comes to a vote in the House of Commons.”
The signatories include Ben Bradshaw and Lord Adonis, former cabinet ministers and leading pro-Europeans, as well as former MEPs, councillors and local activists.
