LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's House of Commons on Tuesday night approved a legal framework for Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Brexit deal with the bloc, but rejected Johnson's exit timetable.
A total of 329 deputies vs. 299 passed the law just nine days before the UK's planned divorce from the European Union, with the prime minister's request for a speedy vote on Brexit due to be implemented in accordance with the October 31 exit plan.
The British House of Commons, in a vote this evening, rejected the Prime Minister's timetable for the exit from the European Union.
According to Bloomberg, 322 lawmakers rejected the plan and 308 supported it.
It will be almost impossible for Britain to achieve Brexit at the end of the month, which Johnson has long promised.
Johnson announced the suspension of the Brexit deal in parliament after rejecting the government's approval schedule pending a European decision on a possible postponement.
Johnson told lawmakers he would ask the Europeans about their "intentions" about the postponement request passed by lawmakers on Saturday. "Pending their decision, we will suspend this legislation," he said.
On Monday, British House Speaker John Birko rejected the government's request for a vote on the agreement reached by Prime Minister Boris Johnson with European leaders on Brexit.
He justified his decision by saying that the council voted last Saturday on the agreement, and that it would be "repetition" to discuss again.
Attention was turned to John Birko on whether to allow Johnson to submit the secession agreement again to vote.
