Trade Bill — New Clause 18 — UK-EU Free Trade Area or Customs Union

Division number 223 in the House of Commons on 17 July 2018.

Alison Thewliss voted to make it a UK negotiating objective to establish a free trade area for goods between the UK and the EU and, if that cannot be agreed by the 21st of January 2019, to make reaching an agreement to enable the UK’s participation in a customs union with the EU a negotiating objective.

A majority of MPs disagreed and voted against making it a UK negotiating objective to establish a free trade area for goods between the UK and the EU and, if that cannot be agreed by the 21st of January 2019, against making reaching an agreement to enable the UK’s participation in a customs union with the EU a negotiating objective.
