The British government has a legally binding Changes to the EU exit agreement with the EU. The Vice-head of government, David Lidington, informed on Monday in the Parliament in London. The negotiations in Strasbourg lasted but still.
British Prime Minister Theresa May had agreed in talks with EU representatives in Strasbourg on Changes in the strengths of the exit agreement, as well as the political Declaration "and improve", said British Deputy Prime Minister Lidington in the house of Commons. The compromise May want to secure in the lower house but a majority in favour of the London-controversial exit agreement.
Juncker: No third Chance
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has the breakthrough in the renegotiation of the Brexit-the agreement is confirmed. He had agreed with the British Prime Minister, Thresa May, on a "legally binding Instrument" as a complement to the EU exit the contract, said Juncker late on Monday evening in Strasbourg.
This should make it clear that the controversial Backstop clause to the Irish border is no want solution. According to a Letter from the EU Commission, the heads of the Irish government has agreed to the Brexit guarantees.
Juncker, urged the British Parliament, the exit of the contract to agree to now. The lower house should vote on Tuesday. "There will be no third Chance," said Juncker. He was sure that the exit agreement in good time prior to the Brexit-date 29. March ratified.
Our agreement provides meaningful clarifications and legal guarantees to the Withdrawal Agreement & #backstop. The choice is clear: it is this deal, or #Brexit may not happen at all. Let's bring the UK’s withdrawal to an orderly end. We owe it to history. https://t.co/lfy9eehEZi pic.twitter.com/XCqcLwZV7V— Jean-Claude Juncker (@JunckerEU) 11. March 2019
Already on Tuesday will vote on the British members of Parliament. Until recently it was considered likely that the Brussels negotiated Deal will fail. After a quiet May, with the surprising journey in the talks with the EU was looking for Strasbourg, the breakthrough in the last Minute. It is unclear whether this will be enough to win enough support in the lower house.
How Lidington said the British government to the Parliament two documents: a common, legally binding Declaration of the exit agreement, and to the so-called Backstop for the Irish border. And a joint Declaration supplementing the political Declaration, in the UK and the EU future relations sketch. Ultimately the UK could expose the scheme to the Irish border if the EU violates its obligations.
The Backstop is in the Brexit dispute the crux of the matter. This is the requested by Brussels, a guarantee for an open border between the EU-state of Ireland and British Northern Ireland. So far, it is provided that the UK should remain as a Whole in a customs Union with the EU, until another solution is found. But the reject the Brexit-hard-liners in Mays Conservative party.
Multiple voting is planned
The EU had made a legally-binding assurances that the Backstop will be used if at all only briefly. In addition, Barnier suggested that the UK could leave the customs Union unilaterally, as long as special rules for Northern Ireland remained valid.
In the case of a rejection of the Treaty on Tuesday May want to let the members of Parliament on Wednesday about a withdrawal without a Deal, the vote. Even that is rejected, to choose the deputies on Thursday, if London is to apply for a postponement of the Brexits. (fal/nlu/sep/sda)
