These movements are not subject to additional requirements for businesses in Northern Ireland, with the very limited and specific exception of trade in threatened species and conflict diamonds. On 20 December 2019, after the Conservatives won the 2019 British general election, the House of Commons passed second reading of the withdrawal agreement by a majority of 358 to 234. Following the amendments proposed by the House of Lords and the ping-pong between the two houses, the bill was granted royal approval on 23 January 2020, allowing ratification on the British side.

The European Commission will present to the Council its draft comprehensive negotiating mandate shortly after the UK`s withdrawal, which means that the EU and the UK will have a maximum of more than 11 months to conclude a negotiation that, according to the agreements negotiated by the EU with Canada and Japan, would normally last several years. It took more than five years for Canada and the EU to negotiate their comprehensive economic and trade agreement, and Japan and the EU negotiated their economic partnership agreement for nearly five years – and as complicated as they are, they are much less complicated than the partnership described in the political declaration.

The ban also means that there is a real possibility that the UK will .m on 31 December to 23. The EU and the UK have reached an agreement on the withdrawal agreement with a revised protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (abolition of the “backstop”) and a revised political declaration.

On 19 December 2019, the British government tabled the amended EU Bill (Withdrawal Agreement) in the House of Commons. The aim of the bill is to “implement the agreement between the UK and the EU, in accordance with Article 50, paragraph 2, of the Treaty on the European Union, which sets out the terms of the UK`s exit from the EU, and to adopt other provisions relating to the EU.” The bill and its explanations are available on the following link: On 15 November 2018, the day after the agreement was presented and the support of the British government cabinet, several members of the government resigned, including Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for leaving the European Union. [28] The United Kingdom has launched the formal process of withdrawal negotiations by formally indicating to the European Council its intention to leave the EU.
