Brexit deal: Parliament will conduct voting poll again in June
LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmakers will vote on Prime Minister Theresa May‘s Brexit deal in the first week of June, the same week U.S. President Donald Trump is due to visit Britain, Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Wednesday (May 15).
May‘s deal has been rejected three times by parliament and the government said on Tuesday (May 14) it now planned to bring forward the legislation required to ratify an exit deal early next month.
"The House of Commons will have an opportunity to vote on the Withdrawal Agreement Bill the week commencing June 3," Barclay told a committee of members of the upper chamber of parliament.
"Obviously there is President Trump‘s visit as well so that is going to be an interesting week."
He also said that Theresa May‘s Brexit deal with Brussels will be dead in its current form if parliament rejects it for a fourth time .
Asked by a committee member if this was the last chance saloon for May‘s divorce deal, Barclay said:
"If the House of Commons does not approve the WAB (Withdrawal Agreement Bill), then the Barnier deal is dead in that form and the House will have to then address a fundamental question between whether it will pursue and communicate on a no-deal option or whether it will revoke."
