Withdrawal Agreement Bill Betekenis
The WAB is a fundamentally different exercise from what we have seen so far in the run-up to the Brexit process. It is a bill, not a motion, so it can be amended to create legally binding obligations for the government. However, its main objective being to implement the withdrawal agreement, an international treaty, it cannot be changed in a way incompatible with this agreement if we want to withdraw by agreement. The most important elements of the draft agreement are: On 15 January 2019, the House of Commons voted by 230 votes against the Brexit withdrawal agreement, the largest vote against the UK government in history.  The government may survived a vote of confidence the next day.  On March 12, 2019, the House of Commons voted 149 votes against the agreement, the fourth-biggest defeat of the government in the history of the House of Commons.  A third vote on the Brexit withdrawal agreement, widely expected on 19 March 2019, was rejected by the House of Commons spokesman on 18 March 2019, on the basis of a parliamentary convention of 2 April 1604, which prevented British governments from forcing the House of Commons to vote several times on a subject already voted on by the House of Commons.    An abbreviated version of the withdrawal agreement, in which the annex political statement had been withdrawn, consisted of the test of “substantial amendments,” so that a third vote was held on 29 March 2019, but was rejected by 58 votes.  The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which time 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. The withdrawal agreement also contains provisions for the United Kingdom to leave the Convention setting the status of European schools, with the United Kingdom bound by the Convention and accompanying regulations on accredited European schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e.
at the end of the spring semester 2020-2021.  publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/58-01/0001/20001.pdf The withdrawal agreement defines how the UK and the EU will resolve their outstanding financial obligations arising from the UK`s participation in the EU budget as a member state and the wider aspects of its EU membership.
