British Brexit minister David Davis said Monday that will the government would certainly allow parliament the opportunity to debate, scrutinize as well as vote on any final Brexit agreement, offering a concession to Conservative Party rebels.
Prime Minister Theresa May is usually under pressure to offer parliament the chance to have a ‘meaningful vote’ on any deal on Britain’s departure via the European Union, with members of her own party willing to vote against the government to stymie legislation needed to sever ties with the bloc.
“I can at that will point confirm that will once we’ve reached an agreement we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that will agreement,” he told parliament.
“that will also means that will parliament will be give to debate, scrutinize as well as vote on the final agreement we strike with the European Union. that will agreement will only hold if parliament approves the idea.”
