Part of European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill – in the House of Commons at 10:11 pm on 3rd April 2019.

Alert me about debates like this

This new clause changes the procedure for regulations, under section 20(4) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, altering the definition of “exit day” from affirmative to negative procedure.

Brought up, and added to the Bill.

The Speaker resumed the Chair.
