Brexit UK news – MPs call for more time to debate trade deal as EU unanimously approve agreement

MPs have called for more time to debate the historic £660billion trade deal with Europe.

Former Brexit secretary David Davis yesterday said that the one-day debate would be too short.

And Andrew Bridgen said there should be “a provisional approval vote followed by full parliamentary scrutiny and a subsequent confirmatory vote” in the new year.

EU ambassadors have today approved the Brexit trade deal with the UK, ahead of the MPs vote.

The deal, hammered out on Christmas Eve ahead of implementation on January 1, has been given another green light with the unanimous approval.
