Irish Foreign Secretary Simon Coveney told BBC Newsnight that it was “not surprising” that the bill was “essentially rejected” by the House of Lords, adding: “This is as controversial a law in the UK as it is outside the UK.” This bill aims to implement the agreement between the UNITED KINGDOM and the EU, in accordance with Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, which sets out the terms of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU. He reportedly asked the government to commit to negotiating an agreement with the EU on minors, thus tightening the existing promise in the bill to make a statement on the matter within two months. On July 24, 2018, the government presented a white paper on the bill and how the legislation works.  The bill was first presented by the government during the second session of the 57th Parliament, on 21 October 2019, entitled “A Bill to Implement, and make other provision in connection with, the agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, which defines the modalities for the United Kingdom`s exit from the UNION`.  This bill was not discussed after second reading in the House of Commons on October 22, 2019 and expired on November 6, when Parliament was dissolved in preparation for the 2019 parliamentary elections. Once the bill has completed its commons phase, he will go to the Lords. In particular, the lords will examine the extensive delegated powers that the government wants to assume in this legislation. This was a big battleground in the 2018 EU withdrawal law. There is a case where trade negotiations between EU and UK representatives continue in London as they try to reach an agreement on a future economic partnership. Ministers say they support the principle of the Dubs amendment, but the Brexit law is not the right vehicle for it. Described by The Independent as the government that “recites” conservative rebels, the bill as originally conceived would have allowed MPs to review any agreement “line by line” and make changes.  Conservative MP Steve Baker, who wrote for the Times, claimed that the new bill “gives a good rule of law to any deal we make with the EU” and that it is in line with the referendum result by “giving more control over how we are governed by the British Parliament”.
 Members considered key areas of the bill at second reading on Monday, January 13. . . .
