European Union (Withdrawal) Bill — Reject Third Reading — Membership of the European Union — 17 Jan 2018 at 18:59
The majority of MPs voted for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
The majority of MPs voted to repeal the European Communities Act 1972 which took the United Kingdom into the European Union, to end the supremacy of European Union law in United Kingdom law, to convert European Union law to United Kingdom law on the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the union, and to empower ministers both to correct those laws which would no longer operate effectively and to implement the terms of a withdrawal agreement.
MPs were considering the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and debating a motion:
- That the Bill be now read the Third time.
The majority of MPs voted against an amendment stating:
- leave out from “That” to the end of the Question and add:
- “this House regrets the non-appearance of any Government amendments to Clause 11 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill despite the announcement by the Secretary of State for Scotland that the Government intended to table them for Report Stage and declines to give a Third Reading to the Bill because it is not fit for purpose as it undermines the fundamental principles of the Scotland Act 1998 by reserving to the UK Parliament powers that would otherwise be devolved to the Scottish Parliament on the UK leaving the European Union.”
