BORIS Johnson’s Brexit Bill is expected to breeze through with a comfortable majority as the legislation returned to the House of Commons today.
Mr Johnson brought the bill to the Commons for more debate this afternoon and begin delivering his election promise to get Brexit done.
MPs will continue to debate and vote on the Withdrawal Agreement Bill later this evening as the country hurtles towards the January 31 exit date.
The bill was given overwhelming support at the end of last year as 358 MPs voted in favour of the bill, and only 234 voted against.
Meanwhile, the PM is set to meet with the newly appointed EU Commission Chief, Ursula von der Leyen at Number 10 on Wednesday – her first visit to Downing Street.
The visit will be followed by 11 months of trade talks to bash out a deal between the UK and the EU before the transition period ends at midnight on December 31.
Mr Johnson promised again and again to get Brexit done by January 31 this year during the election campaign.
MPs can attempt to add and vote on amendments as the bill is brought back to the House of Commons in what is known as the committee stage.
With Boris’ storming 80-seat majority, nothing will be added on to it without support of the Tories.
An amendment by Tory Brexiteers to have Big Ben bong in celebration of Brexit, won’t be debated on by MPs in the commons.
The bell is not currently hung at Westminster, after being taken down for maintenance, and would have to be reattached especially for the day.
Labour has tabled an amendment to give Parliament a say in extending the transition period.
The Lib Dems are fighting for a proposal to require the government to seek an extension to the transition period if trade talks are not done by June this year.
