Members of the British Parliament will vote on Theresa May’s EU approved Brexit deal on the week beginning January 14, ahead of Britain’s scheduled leaving of the EU on March 29, 2019. 

The vote was initially scheduled for December 11, but was postponed by Theresa May as she admitted it “would be rejected by a significant margin.” The Prime Minister then then faced a vote of no-confidence from with her party, which she won 200-137.

The days session of parliament also saw leader of the opposition, Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, propose a vote of no-confidence. Addressing the Commons, Mr. Corbyn said that the Prime Minister had “led the country into a national crisis,” and stated that “(it’s) very clear that it’s bad, unacceptable that we should be waiting almost a month before we have a meaningful vote.”

Unlike the previous weeks vote, if the call is accepted by the government MPs of all parties would be able to vote on whether they think Mrs. May should remain as the head of the government.

Mr Corbyn’s proposal is due to be tabled on Tuesday December 18, however the government is not obligated to schedule a confidence vote before Christmas.
