The approval process can start before Christmas.
LONDON – The bill on the implementation of Brexit is scheduled to be submitted to the new House of Commons of the British Parliament on Friday, December 20. The official representative of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated this on Monday.
“We plan to start the process of approving the bill of withdrawal from the EU before Christmas, it is planned to submit it to Parliament on Friday,” said an employee of the Prime Minister’s office.
As the representative of the Prime Minister added, the British Cabinet is confident that after the implementation of “Brexit,” the Kingdom will be able to agree quickly with the EU on the terms of long-term economic cooperation. He confirmed that Johnson intends to conclude a trade agreement with the EU, which will be based on the same principles as the Treaty concluded in 2016 between the EU and Canada.
The House of Commons will begin its work in an updated composition on Tuesday, December 17. Members of the Johnson government have repeatedly stated that they will try to approve the laws necessary for Brexit in Parliament as soon as possible. British political observers suggest that this may be reduced terms of the Christmas parliamentary recess and appointed additional meetings at the weekend.
