The government led by British Prime Minister Theresa May had to encounter a defeat in parliament while lawmakers who resist departing the European Union without an agreement won a vote that generated a new barrier to a no-deal Brexit.
The 296 to 303 defeat denotes t5hat the government requires distinct parliamentary sanction to leave the EU without a deal before it can use unquestionable powers linking to the taxation law.
The defeat executes the weak position of Theresa May as leader of a minority government, a split party, and a crucial parliament just days before she is due to hold a pivotal vote on whether to sanction the Brexit deal which was negotiated by her with the EU.
The rival leader Jeremy Corbyn from Labour Party told, “ This vote is an important step to prevent a no-deal Brexit. It shows that there is no majority in Parliament, the Cabinet or the country for crashing out of the EU without an agreement”.
The government underestimated the importance of this defeat. A representative said, “ This amendment does not change the fact that the UK is leaving the EU on the 29 March, and it will not stop the government from collecting tax”.
“ We will work with Parliament to make sure that the tax system works smoothly in all Brexit scenarios.”
With less than three months until Britain quits the EU, May is fighting to win sanction for her Brexit deal.
A no-deal expel is the default scenario if Theresa May’s deal declined and the approach of possible supply chain disorder, medicine scarcity, and blocked ports have in recent weeks drove companies and his government to skip the incidental planning.
