The vote in the House of Commons on December 11 under the agreement on the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union will not take place, Prime Minister Theresa May said.
The vote in the British House of Commons on the “Brexit” agreement scheduled for 11 December has been postponed to a later date. This was stated in the Parliament of the country Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, December 10, thereby confirming the reports of a number of local media. At the same time, she admitted that she would have lost the vote in the House of Commons “with a significant lag.”
May stressed that the delay does not mean the refusal of the deal with the EU. The head of the British government intends to offer Brussels to hold additional negotiations on the adjustment of the agreement. According to Theresa May, she will present to colleagues from the EU “clear concerns” deputies of the lower house of the British Parliament and will require “further guarantees”. For “Brexit” to be successful, a compromise of all parties is necessary, the British Prime Minister stressed.
When exactly can take place a new vote, May not reported. But pointed out that the government in London will strengthen training in case of a hard version of “Brexit”.
The European Commission ruled out new negotiations
Earlier in the day, Brussels ruled out a revision of the agreement on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. “We will not hold new negotiations, our position has not changed,” — said the official representative of the European Commission. According to the Chairman of the Brussels Department Jean-Claude Juncker, the agreement reached is “the best possible”.
On December 4, the British Parliament began a five-day debate on the “Brexit” agreement with the EU. At the same time, a significant part of the opposition deputies, as well as about 100 members of the Conservative May’s party, intend to vote against the Treaty with Brussels. The UK plans to withdraw from the EU on 29 March 2019.
