- In an effort to sway the Labour Party to support her Brexit plan, Prime Minister Theresa May will highlight the details of several compromises previously agreed on by the cabinet.
- These compromises include workers’ rights, protections for the environment and “a temporary customs relationship until the next general election,” which are part of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill.
- The bill is “legislation required to bring the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU into British law.”
- The Withdrawal Agreement Bill is expected to be voted on in June in the House of Commons.
- There have already been politicians who said they plan to vote against the bill, including Tory Brexiteers and the SNP.
- The withdrawal bill has already been voted down three times previously. Additionally, negotiations with Labour on finding an acceptable compromise ended in no deal last week.
- May said: “The Withdrawal Agreement Bill is the vehicle which gets the UK out of the EU and it is vital to find a way to get it over the line.”
