  • May was seeking a ‘stable majority in Parliament that will ensure the safe passage of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and the UK’s swift exit from the EU’.

Prime Minister Theresa May’s government will introduce draft legislation in the first week of June, which would allow Brexit to proceed if approved by Parliament. The announcement came after discussion between Theresa May and Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on a possible compromise that would end a deadlock on Brexit in Parliament.  Theresa May met with Corbyn to make clear their determination to bring the talks to a conclusion and deliver on the referendum results to leave the EU. She said that ‘we will be bringing forward the Withdrawal Agreement Bill in the week beginning June 3’.

May was seeking a ‘stable majority in Parliament that will ensure the safe passage of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and the UK’s swift exit from the EU’. For the past six weeks, ministers and their labour counterparts have been discussing that how Parliament might accept the agreement May struck with the European Union last year. May’s Brexit deal has already been rejected three times by the ministers. After which she turned to Labour last month in the hope of finding a way through, but the party is insisting on a close trading relationship with the European Unions that many conservative MP’s rejects. Corbyn had raised ‘concerns about Theresa May’s ability to deliver on any compromise agreement’. He also raised doubts over the credibility of government commitments.

After Brexit has already been delayed twice, Britain is reluctantly taking part in European Parliament elections on 23 May, almost three years after the referendum vote to leave the union. The government is hoping to get the London Parliament’s agreement for the divorce deal in the coming weeks so British MEPs would never have to take their seats. But the goal of getting the bill ratifies the treaty passed by the end of July, suggests that they will have to.
