It became known how ended the negotiations between British Prime Minister Theresa may and opposition leader Jeremy Corbin, held the day before. According to The Guardian, May said that the agreement with the EU on the terms of “Brexit” will be put to the vote of the House of Commons in early June – “regardless of whether it will be possible to enlist the support of labor or not.” Corbin himself expressed doubt that May will be able to achieve inter-party agreement. Moreover, a number of conservatives are against it.
On the condition of anonymity, a source on Downing Street, 10 confirmed that the Cabinet intends to achieve consideration of the transaction in the lower house in the week starting from June 3. It is necessary for Britain to finally leave the European Union before parliamentarians leave for the summer holidays. They usually begin in mid-July, but a specific date has not yet been announced. Meanwhile, earlier at the EU summit, it was decided that the British still have to participate in the elections to the European Parliament if by May 22 the Kingdom will not ratify the exit agreement.
“The Prime Minister met with the leader of the opposition in the House of Commons to demonstrate our determination to bring the negotiations to an end and implement the outcome of the referendum on leaving the EU,” the representative of May said.
“The talks between the Prime Minister and the opposition leader were useful and constructive. Tomorrow they will continue at the official level, as we strive to get a stable majority in Parliament to ensure the safe passage of the draft law of the exit agreement and the rapid termination of the UK’s membership in the EU,” he added.
