The British government has confirmed that parliament will vote on Brexit again on Friday, but only on one part of the deal reached with the European Union. Members of parliament will vote on the withdrawal agreement including the Irish ‘backstop’, divorce bill and citizens’ rights.
But it will not amount to a third ‘meaningful vote’ on the deal, as it will not include a vote on the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
Meanwhile the British Chambers of Commerce said MPs need to stop “chasing rainbows” when it comes to resolving the Brexit impasse. At their annual conference, they said the Brexit uncertainty is already doing “real world damage” to the UK economy.
The 29th March was meant to be the day that Britain left the European Union. The BBC has been talking to voters in Weston-Super-Mare in North Somerset, where like the UK as a whole, they voted 52 to 48 in favour of Leaving.
