Brexit: MPs to vote on Boris Johnson’s deal

London, UK (HRNW) MPs will vote later on whether to back the prime minister’s plan for the UK to leave the EU on 31 January. According to BBC news The EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill would also ban the government from extending the transition period – where the UK is out of the EU but follows many of its rules – past 2020. Boris Johnson said it would allow the UK to “move forward”. Opponents say the bill leaves the UK’s  future uncertain, and agreeing a trade deal with the EU could take many years.But the government insists one can be in place by the end the transition period.  The withdrawal bill, which would implement the Brexit agreement the prime minister reached with the EU in October, was introduced in Thursday’s Queen’s Speech, setting out the government’s priorities for the next year.
