“We need to be able to say we are here to be a part of the solution.
We are part of this together.”
– Theresa May in a speech to parliament on June 19, 2019.
May is to introduce legislation to create a new British government with an executive and legislative framework for Brexit that includes the power to make a deal with the EU, the UK’s exit from the bloc and the process of leaving the customs union.
“I want to be absolutely clear about this: we need to have a strong, united and ambitious, united country,” she said.
“And this means the power of our national Parliament to be the voice of the people.”
This will be the most powerful Parliament in British history.
“The bill will be introduced by May’s Conservative government and will be debated by the House of Commons at the beginning of September.
She will say the bill “creates a new, centralised Government and sets out the direction for the future.”
May will outline her priorities for the Brexit negotiations, including the need to create an effective transition to a post Brexit relationship, and to ensure that trade and trade deals between the EU and the UK are fully aligned with British interests.
The legislation also sets out how the UK will seek to remain in the customs unions.
May will set out her vision for a new partnership with the European Union, saying it must include a “strong and durable relationship” with the bloc, with Britain having “greater control over its borders.”
The new legislation also calls for the creation of an Office of European Affairs to work closely with the United Kingdom’s international partners.”
The Government’s vision for the post-EU world is one of a stronger and more united country with greater control over our borders,” May said.
The bill also sets a timetable for the UK to leave the customs Union, with the deadline of March 2019, but will not say when the UK is expected to be outside the union.
The UK will not be allowed to negotiate the future relationship with the 27 EU countries or the European Court of Justice.
