Consideration of Decision not to Proceed with Debate on the EU Withdrawal Agreement — 11 Dec 2018 at 17:03

The majority of MPs voted not to accept MPs had considered the Prime Minister’s decision not to proceed with the the debate, and potential vote, on the proposed agreement for the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.

The motion was apparently just a device to enable debate, there was no real impact of a vote either way.

The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • has considered the Prime Minister’s unprecedented decision not to proceed with the final two days of debate and the meaningful vote, despite the House’s Order of Tuesday 4 December 2018, and her failure to allow this House to express its view on the Government’s deal or her proposed negotiating objectives, without the agreement of this House.
