The Week in Westminster, 8 Dec “Brexit Debate Special”

This week the government lost three votes in the House of Commons;
MPs backed calls to have a direct say in the final deal, called for the government to publish the full legal advice regarding the Brexit Deal, and historically the Government was found in contempt of parliament. 

With 2 of Medway’s 3 MPs having recently quit the Government and declared they could not support the PM’s deal, how did they vote?

All three MPs voted with the Government. 

So what did they do the rest of the week?

To the Delegated Legislation Committee

On Draft Package Travel And Linked Travel Arrangements (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

They form part of the wider programme of work to adjust our legislative framework in readiness for leaving the European Union.

On Draft Competition (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

Should we leave the EU without an agreement in place, this SI would minimise litigation risk for the Competition and Markets Authority and provide legal clarity and certainty for businesses and consumers.

Somehow, we’re back: It’s been a tough year for all of us, and we had to take a little step back from The Political Medway. But we’re back now, and trying to provide as much good, independent coverage of politics in Medway as we can. We are a volunteer run team, and while there’s lots of things we’d like to cover, we only have a finite amount of time and resources we can dedicate to this. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a one-off or monthly contribution via our Ko-fi. If you aren’t in a position to donate right now, that’s totally cool, and we really appreciate you stopping by regardless.
