The European Parliament will launch its internal procedure for adopting the withdrawal agreement tomorrow at 4 p.m. at its meeting of the Committee on Constitutional Affairs. After a debate and vote, the committee will recommend to the plenary of the European Parliament to vote on the final approval of the agreement, scheduled for next Wednesday in Brussels. The first (Amendment 1) concerns the residence rights of EU citizens. MEPs voted by 269 votes in favour and 229 against, resulting in the amendment. Six Labour members voted for the bill – Sarah Champion, Rosie Cooper, Jon Cruddas, Emma Lewell-Buck, Grahame Morris, Toby Perkins. Here is Lewell-Buck`s speech, in which she says she decided with a heavy heart that she could not vote with the Labour Party. On 12 February 2019, Theresa May made a statement to the House of Commons on the government`s progress in securing a withdrawal agreement.  On 14 February, a vote on a amendable motion was held as follows: «Let this House welcome the Prime Minister`s statement of 12 February 2019; reaffirms its support for the approach to leaving the EU expressed by this House on 29 January 2019 and notes that discussions between the UK and the EU on the «backstop» are under way. And so to a vote on the proposed program.
That`s the last time Boris Johnson did something wrong. Spoiler: It won`t happen again. And Boris Johnson knows this and says it`s time for «security» after years of «delay and blackmail.» On January 9, 2019, the government revised the timetable in light of the cancellation of the december 11, 2018 vote.  In December 2017, pressure on the government to amend Clause 9 for Parliament to change the final terms of the UK-EU withdrawal agreement by 29 March 2019, for the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, a date set. Conservative MP Dominic Grieve advised the government to amend the clause itself or it would table its own amendment to the bill.  Grieve introduced its amendment to the Bill (Amendment 7) in which it stipulates that a Brexit agreement must be implemented by legislative and not by government decision.  The first (Amendment 18) would ensure the continuity of refugee children and the provisions of the EU Withdrawal Act for family reunification in 2018. MePs voted by 300 votes in favour and 220 against, which resulted in the amendment.
On September 3, Oliver Letwin filed an emergency request for debate on this bill, pursuant to Permanent Order 24. This proposal, to allow the debate for the next day, was adopted at 328 against 301.   21 Conservative MPs voted in favour of the motion, then were removed from the Conservative whip and rejected for future elections, as Johnson had threatened him in advance. The 21 MPs were Guto Bebb, Richard Benyon, Steve Brine, Alastair Burt, Greg Clark, Ken Clarke, David Gauke, Justine Greening, Dominic Grieve, Sam Gyimah, Phillip Hammond, Stephen Hammond, Richard Harrington, Margot James, Letwin, Anne Milton, Caroline Nokes, Antoinette Sandbach, Nicholas Sosame, Rory Stewart and Ed Vaizey. With Phillip Lee`s departure to the Liberal Democrats the day before, this gave the opposition a 43-seat majority over the government. Mrs May said a new «useful vote» would take place «as soon as possible» but that she would make a statement if it did not take place by February 13, and that it would be followed by a debate on a changeable proposal on 14 February.  The three Labor MPs who voted for the deal were Ian Austin, Kevin Barron and John Mann.
