UK House of Commons unanimously approves post-Brexit trade deal
With 521 votes in favor and 73 against, the British House of Commons unanimously approved the “Trade and Cooperation Agreement” with the EU. The agreement was approved just one day before the transition period between London and Brussels ended, bringing the UK to officially leave the Single Market and the EU Customs Union from January 1, 2021. With this agreement, the UK will continue to export goods to the EU without the imposition of tariffs and quotas.
Speaking at the opening of the debate in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “The main purpose of this bill is to fulfill the wish that the British people have always known in their hearts to be possible.” Britain can “trade and cooperate” with other European nations, Johnson said, while retaining “sovereign control over our laws and destiny”.
The Brexit deal frees the UK from the constraints of EU competition and state aid laws, he said, meaning London can choose to invest and boost industries everywhere. The agreement also gives Britain control over fishing waters, immigration policy and legislation, while providing “certainty” for airlines and carriers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. .
“We will open a new chapter in our national story,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, adding that “it is now all up to us to make the best use of the strengths we have regained. Okay”.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has won significant political backing from a prominent group of hardline Brexit supporters within the Conservative Party. However, the Scottish National Party has opposed the “Trade and Cooperation Agreement” with the EU, saying it would harm Scotland’s fishing industry.
After receiving strong support from the British House of Commons, the agreement will continue to be reviewed and voted on by the Senate to officially become law. Earlier, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel and Prime Minister Boris Johnson officially signed the Agreement.
