This ensures that the UK will remain in line with EU climate, environmental and workers` rights conventions in a future trade agreement. Immediately after the announcement of a revised withdrawal agreement on October 17, 2019, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the DUP said they could not support the new agreement.  Parliamentary votes on Brexit, sometimes referred to as “sensible votes,” are parliamentary votes, in accordance with Section 13 of the United Kingdom`s European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, which obliges the UK government to submit a amendable parliamentary motion to ratify the Brexit withdrawal agreement at the end of negotiations between the government and the European Union, in accordance with Article 50.   The program application was approved by 353 votes to 243. In the absence of significant changes in the positions of political parties, as expected, the government was defeated by 432 votes to 202 in the 15 January vote. The 230-vote lead was the worst for a government in the modern history of Parliament.  196 Conservative MPs, 3 Labour MPs and 3 independent MPs supported the agreement. The deal was voted against 118 Conservative MPs, 248 Labour MPs, 35 SNP MPs, 11 Liberal Democrats, 10 DUP MPs, 4 Plaid Cymru MPs, the only Green MP and five independent MPs.  At third reading, MEPs voted overwhelmingly in favour of the European Union by 330 votes to 231 (withdrawal agreement). On 23 October, the House of Commons considered three technical provisions concerning the UK`s withdrawal from the EU.
The legislative debate focused on the repeal of certain technical provisions enshrined in British law with regard to the EU. If these three acts were to be voted on, they would only come into force if the UK finally left the EU. The three points discussed related to changes to existing UK legislation to remove 1) THE EU`s free movement provisions  2) the UK`s regulatory oversight by third countries 3) regarding EU-codified financial services.  All three amendments were put to a divisive vote and all three passed the vote in the House of Commons.    The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020 during which the United Kingdom will remain in the internal market to ensure the flow of trade until a long-term relationship is concluded. If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK. He urged the government to reconsider its opposition to his party`s plans, adding that ploughing “cannot win many votes in this Parliament, but we can win the moral argument.” The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Department renegotiation in 2019.
The amendments fit about 5% of the text.  The British Parliament approved the draft agreement by adopting 2020 implementing laws (Eu-17 Withdrawal Act (Withdrawal Agreement) 2020. Following the signing of the agreement, the UK Government adopted and tabled the UK`s ratification instrument on 29 January 2020.  The agreement was ratified by the Council of the European Union on 30 January 2020, after approval by the European Parliament on 29 January 2020.
