European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill — Second Reading — 3 Apr 2019 at 19:00
The majority of MPs voted in favour of MPs deciding if to seek to delay the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
The majority of MPs voted to support the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill and enable it to continue on its path to becoming law. The Bill empowers MPs to decide if to seek to delay the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.
The Bill requires a motion to be put before the House of Commons in the form:
- “That this House agrees for the purposes of section 2 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019 to the Prime Minister seeking an extension of the period specified in Article 50(3) of the Treaty on European Union to a period ending on […]”
The date to which the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union would be delayed was not given in the Bill but would, under subsection 1(3) of the Bill, be added to the motion prior to it being moved and could be amended during debate.
The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the Bill be now read a Second time.
The passing of this motion enabled the Bill to continue on its path to becoming law.
