Parliament took control of the Brexit process for the second time in the space of a week yesterday. 

MPs voted on four alternative proposals to Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, which has been rejected three times so far. 

These include Tory Europhile Kenneth Clarke’s plan for a customs union arrangement with the EU, a demand for a second referendum, a Norway style Common Market 2.0 and cancelling Brexit if no deal is agreed by April 12.

Gosport

Isle of Wight

Bob Steeley voted against all of the proposals put before Parliament last night. 

What did the different proposals mean? 

Customs union

If Britain was to agree a post-Brexit customs union with the EU it would mean applying the same tariffs to imported goods from the rest of the world as all the other European countries do.

Currently the EU has 69 trade agreements in place with countries across the world – so the UK would have to impose the same tariffs when trading with the likes of Canada and South Korea. 

These tariffs would be negotiated by Brussels and Britain would then have to impose them, despite leaving the EU. 

Common Market 2.0

Under this proposal the UK would have to remain in the single market – meaning the freedom of movement would continue despite leaving the EU, like Norway does despite not being a full member of the union. 

Britain would also seek a temporary customs union with the EU under this plan. (See above for more on customs union).
