Following the vote on the Prime Minister’s ‘Plan B’ in Parliament, the House of Commons voted in favour of the ‘Brady amendment’ calling for the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement to be reopened to allow for renegotiation of the backstop proposals. In response, the EU has stated that there are no new offers on the backstop available, and that any alternatives to the backstop could only take place in the context of future relationship. Meanwhile, no-deal preparations have been stepped up, as the Irish Government publishes the general scheme of proposed legislative measures required in a no-deal scenario.

Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website.
