UK Withdrawal from the European Union — Delay Withdrawal if MPs Agree Withdrawal Agreement — 14 Mar 2019 at 17:00

The majority of MPs voted in favour of delaying the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union by up to three months subject to a majority of MPs agreeing the withdrawal agreement by 20 March 2019.

The reason for the delay was given in the motion as being: "for the purpose of passing the necessary EU exit legislation".

MPs were considering a motion stating:

  • That this House:
  • (1) notes the resolutions of the House of 12 and 13 March, and accordingly agrees that the Government will seek to agree with the European Union an extension of the period specified in Article 50(3);
  • (2) agrees that, if the House has passed a resolution approving the negotiated withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future relationship for the purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 by 20 March 2019, then the Government will seek to agree with the European Union a one-off extension of the period specified in Article 50(3) for a period ending on 30 June 2019 for the purpose of passing the necessary EU exit legislation; and
  • (3) notes that, if the House has not passed a resolution approving the negotiated withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future relationship for the purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 by 20 March 2019, then it is highly likely that the European Council at its meeting the following day would require a clear purpose for any extension, not least to determine its length, and that any extension beyond 30 June 2019 would require the United Kingdom to hold European Parliament elections in May 2019.

The date and time for the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union had been set as 29 March 2019 at 11.00 p.m. by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018[1].
