UK Withdrawal from the EU — Consideration of a Short Delay if Withdrawal Agreement and Leaving Without an Agreement Rejected — 27 Feb 2019 at 18:48
The majority of MPs voted to consider seeking a short delay to the United Kingdom leaving the European Union if MPs reject both the negotiated withdrawal agreement and reject leaving without an agreement.
MPs were considering a motion stating:
- That this House
- notes the Prime Minister’s statement on Leaving the European Union of 26 February 2019; and further notes that discussions between the UK and the EU are ongoing.
The amendment accepted via this vote was:
- Amendment (f), at end, add
- and further notes in particular the commitment of the Prime Minister made
in this House to hold a second meaningful vote by 12 March and if the House, having rejected leaving with the deal negotiated with the EU, then rejects leaving on 29 March without a withdrawal agreement and future framework, the Government will, on 14 March, bring forward a motion on whether Parliament wants to seek a short limited extension to Article 50, and if the House votes for an extension, seek to agree that extension approved by the House with the EU, and bring forward the necessary legislation to change the exit date commensurate with that extension.”.
