Brexit Latest

The UK Parliament has voted against the Prime ministers current Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

What does this mean?

The default position if a deal cannot be agreed in time is that the UK would leave the EU on 29 March, 2019 without a deal and EU treaties would cease to apply in the UK. Trade would take place under World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules in this scenario. This means that the UK would no longer be part of the Single Market or the Customs Union, and goods would be subject to border checks and tariffs.

However, efforts are likely to be made to avoid a No Deal Brexit. There is a narrow window for the UK Government to try and negotiate amendments to the Withdrawal Agreement and have a second attempt at getting it voted through the UK Parliament or for an extension of Article 50 to enable a deal at a later date.
