Withdrawal Agreement Bill Traduzione
At third reading on 16 May 2018, the government suffered its 15th defeat to the Lords, which, including the defeat of the Joint Committee, meant a total of 16 defeats. The bill then passed third reading.  On 13 July 2017, David Davis, Secretary of State for Leaving the European Union, introduced the bill in the House of Commons. As a government bill, this first reading was pro forma, with the first debate taking place at second reading.  A number of clauses in the previous version of the act have been removed. This means that the repeal will come into force during the Brexit negotiations, but that it comes into force on the day of the « withdrawal. » As originally introduced, the bill did not provide a date for the « day of withdrawal » but said that « day of withdrawal » means a day when a Minister of the Crown can appoint by order. »  If no time is indicated, it should be « the beginning of this day. »  However, the government tabled an amendment in committee, so the bill said, « Exit Day » means March 29, 2019 at 11 a.m.m. To avoid a second defeat, the government accepted another amendment that « a Minister of the Crown may change the definition of « withdrawal day » by orders, allowing flexibility in the event of a transitional agreement or overtime in negotiations. On 12 and 13 June, the House of Commons debated the amendments proposed by the Lords.  A majority voted against 14 of the Lord`s 15 amendments and accepted only one on maintaining relations with the EU.  The Government also agreed to accept an amendment encouraging the negotiation of a customs agreement with the EU and compromised other compromises with amendments dealing with northern Ireland, control, environmental and unaccompanied minor migrants.
 A government-backed amendment, which allows legal challenges on the basis of EU law for the three years following Brexit, was also adopted.  It was also agreed that a withdrawal agreement with the EU would not be implemented without Parliament`s approval and, if there was no such approval, a minister would make a statement explaining how the government « proposes to proceed within 28 days » as provided for in Section 13 of the Law within the time adopted.
