REVEALED: THIS is what will happen if MPs vote DOWN Theresa May’s deal in Parliament

 

THERESA May’ Brexit deal will undergo the scrutiny of MPs in the House of Commons who will be able to vote on whether to accept the Prime Minister’s proposal or reject it in its entirety.

 

But what will happen if Mrs May’s deal lacks the necessary support?

A spokesman for 10 Downing Street told Express.co.uk the Government will have 21 days to come back with a new plan after – and if – Parliament votes down her draft Withdrawal Agreement.

 

Only then, both the House of Commons and the House of Lords will be allowed to debate the new proposal under a so-called motion in neutral terms.

Number 10 spokesman said: “The EU Withdrawal Act sets out the process for if Parliament votes to reject the deal, which includes Government coming back to Parliament [within 21 days] to set out how it plans to proceed.

 

“The Government would then introduce a motion in neutral terms [within 7 days] and there would be a debate in both Houses.”

The rules set out in the Withdrawal Act follow those of the Constitutional Reform and Governance (CRAG) Act 2010, which provide Parliament with the ability to debate international treaties before they are ratified by the Government. 

 

It is unclear whether the new option on the table after – and if – Theresa May’s deal is voted down would be.

According to the Institute for Government, a “no” vote could only send the Government back to the negotiating table in two remote scenarios.

 

If the UK Parliamentary vote takes place early enough, then there could be time for UK Parliamentary scrutiny, followed by a UK Parliamentary rejection, followed by further negotiations until the end date provided by the triggering of Article 50 is reached – in this case, 29th March 2019.

 

However, the current timetable does not appear to allow sufficient time for this process. In any case, further negotiations would only be possible if other European countries were also prepared to continue.

 

A late “no” vote could also be followed by further negotiations, but only if the two-year window dictated by Article 50 is extended.

That can only happen with the unanimous agreement of the other member states. It is not within MPs’ remit to extend the negotiating period unilaterally.
