It would have forced the government to commit to negotiating an agreement with the EU on refugee children – thereby hardening the promise of the existing law to make a declaration on the matter within two months. The WAB agrees to withdraw Boris Johnson, which is a draft international treaty, into British law and gives the government permission to ratify it. After winning a Conservative majority in the elections, the law was revised and reintroduced on 19 December, after being passed at second reading the following day. The revision of the law in December repealed the provisions adopted in previous versions of parliamentary control of the Brexit negotiations.  After the WAB becomes law, the withdrawal agreement must also be ratified by the European Parliament. The Brexit law will probably have the approval of the king in a day or two. On November 13, 2017, Brexit Minister David Davis announced a new bill to enshrine the withdrawal agreement in national law through primary legislation. In further talks in the House of Commons, Davis said that if the UK decided not to pass the law on 29 March 2019, the UK would remain on track to leave the EU without a deal, having invoked Article 50 in March 2017, following the adoption of the Notification of Withdrawal Act 2017.  Ministers say they support the Dubs amendment principle, but the Brexit Act is not the right vehicle for that. The European Law (Withdrawal Agreement) 2019 was submitted to the House of Commons and, at first reading on Monday 21 October 2019, the second reading took place on 22 October 2019 and we published a briefing on that date. The law did not progress before the dissolution of Parliament for the 2019 British general election. Nevertheless, the peers decided not to continue the fight with the Commons and agreed to let the law pass. Then the Brexit milestones will be set on 31 January, when the post-Brexit transition period begins.
On July 24, 2018, the government presented a white paper on the bill and how legislation works.  The bill was first introduced by the government at the second session stagnated on 21 October 2019 by the government, entitled “A Bill to Implement, and make other provision in connection with, the agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU under Art 50, paragraph 2 of the Treaty on European Union which sets the arrangements for the rekingdom from the EU”.  This bill was not discussed further after second reading in the House of Commons on October 22, 2019, and passed on November 6, when Parliament was dissolved in preparation for the 2019 general election.
