European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 — Consideration of Government Plans — Options to Prevent Withdrawal Without Agreement — Referendum — 29 Jan 2019 at 19:00

The majority of MPs voted against ensuring the provision of Parliamentary time to consider and vote on options to prevent the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a withdrawal agreement. Options listed for consideration included a customs union with the European Union and establishing a strong relationship with the union's single market. The majority of MPs also voted against holding referendum on proposed withdrawal arrangements following their approval by MPs.

MPs were considering a motion stating:

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment (a), in line 1, leave out from “House” to end and add
  • “requires ministers to secure sufficient time for the UK Parliament to consider and vote on options to prevent the UK leaving the EU without a ratified Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration, and that those options should include:
  • (i) Negotiating changes to the draft Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration so as to secure a permanent customs union with the EU, a strong relationship with the single market underpinned by shared institutions and obligations, and dynamic alignment on rights and standards, in order to command a majority in the House of Commons;
  • (ii) Legislating to hold a public vote on a deal or a proposition that has commanded the support of the majority of the House of Commons.”.
