UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The British government will do everything for parliament to ratify the agreement on withdrawal from the EU by October 31, the official representative of the prime minister said.
Earlier Monday, Speaker of the House of Commons of the British Parliament, John Birkou, blocked a re-examination of the Brexit agreement proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The speaker noted that the agreement was already considered by the parliament two days ago, a three-hour debate was held on it and at this time there is no reason to believe that the opinion of the chamber, which did not support the deal on Saturday, will change.
In addition, he said that he considered it unacceptable for the government to “bombard” the parliament with the same document, introducing it for consideration over and over again without changes.
“The prime minister is upset by the decision of the speaker … the parliament rejected the chance to fulfill the will of the British people. The government will do everything to publish the bill on the agreement on leaving the European Union, the parliament is obliged to ratify it before October 31,” the representative of the prime minister told reporters.
At an emergency hearing on October 19, the House of Commons actually refused to support Johnson’s proposed agreement with the EU on Brexit, amending the text of the document confirming the validity of the legislative norm adopted in September on the prime minister’s obligation to request the postponement of the EU’s withdrawal by three months or until the deal will not be approved.
Johnson promised and tried to re-introduce the bill on Monday, but the speaker violated his plans.
The prime minister asked the EU to postpone Brexit until the end of the day on January 31, 2020. Now the decision on the timing of Brexit to be taken by the European Union. It was previously planned that Britain would leave the EU on October 31.
