European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill — Parliamentary Agreement of Terms for Leaving the EU — 13 Mar 2017 at 18:25
The majority of MPs voted against requiring Parliamentary approval of either any agreement with the EU on the terms of the UK's exit or any decision to leave the EU without an agreement.
MPs were considering the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 2.
The rejected Lords amendment 2 sought to add an additional clause to the Bill titled: Parliamentary approval for the outcome of negotiations with the European Union stating:
- (1) The Prime Minister may not conclude an agreement with the European Union under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, on the terms of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, without the approval of both Houses of Parliament.
- (2) Such approval shall be required before the European Parliament debates and votes on that agreement.
- (3) The prior approval of both Houses of Parliament shall also be required in relation to an agreement on the future relationship of the United Kingdom with the European Union.
- (4) The prior approval of both Houses of Parliament shall also be required in relation to any decision by the Prime Minister that the United Kingdom shall leave the European Union without an agreement as to the applicable terms.”
