British Brexit Minister David Davius Offers Parliament Opportunity to Vote on Any Brexit Deal

On Monday, David Davis, the British Brexit minister said that the government would give the parliament the chance to debate, scrutinize and vote on any final Brexit deal, offering a concession to rebels of the Conservative Party.

Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, is under extreme pressure to offer parliament the opportunity to give a ‘meaningful vote’ on any deal on the departure of Britain from the European Union, with members of May’s own party willing to vote against the government in order to hold back legislation that is needed to discontinue ties with the European Union.

“I can now confirm that once we’ve reached an agreement, we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement that agreement,” Davis informed the parliament.

“This also means that parliament will be given to debate, scrutinise and vote on the final agreement we strike with the European Union. This agreement will only hold if parliament approves it.”
