The UK will keep a copy of the agreement while the original will return to Brussels where it will be kept in an archive along with other historic international agreements. 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.

[37] EU officials do not appear to be dealing with Johnson`s deadline of 15 October. The European Union`s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, had set a final deadline at the end of October. EU officials say tey has proposed solutions for stumbling blocks on `fair competition`, fishing and the legal requirements of the agreement.

But it seems that their British colleagues have not made similar concessions. If passed, the bill would be an “extremely serious violation” of the withdrawal agreement and international law. The British government is becoming more and more provocative. This weekend, the chief Brexit negotiator, David Frost, said he was not afraid to escape trade negotiations with the European Union – and that was just the beginning. On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson set a deadline of mid-October for an agreement between Britain and the Bloc. If there were none, he said, the UK would be preparing for a future without a deal. The growing audacity on behalf of British officials comes ahead of the planned publication of an internal market law that would undermine the fundamental principles of the recent withdrawal pact.
