Yesterday, the UK reached a provisional trade agreement with South Korea. The agreement in principle (generally) expands the current trade conditions between the two countries, as defined in the EU-South Korea Free Trade Agreement, ratified in December 2015. However, the agreement between the UK and South Korea is not a permanent trade agreement and should be renegotiated within two years. The interim agreement, the uk`s first post-Brexit trade deal in Asia, aims to cover South Korean exports, including cars and car parts, as well as British exports such as crude oil, cars and whisky. The two countries also agreed to protect the intellectual property rights of wines, flavoured wines and spirits such as Scottish whiskies, Irish whiskies and flavoured South Korean wines. No details have been released on the plans for that day, but it is very likely that it will contain a speech on the stages of No. 10 and could include the appointment of certain high-level cabinet positions. Mr. Johnson could face an immediate review of their ability to govern. Labor could table a motion of no confidence, and if the government lost a vote of confidence, it would have 14 days to try to win another vote, or a general election would be called. However, it is more likely that the Labour Party will hold the fire until 31 October before doing so.
The medico-scientific report will make the government a salutary reading as it prepares for the next phase of the negotiations – especially as negotiations on the UK`s future long-term relationship with the EU will raise much more difficult questions than the negotiations on the terms of its withdrawal from the EU. He warns of the risk of the UK falling into the next phase of negotiations with the EU without a plan, which unnecessarily penalises the country. The useful vote took place on January 15, 2019 in the House of Commons.  The vote was originally scheduled to take place on December 11, 2018, but on December 10, May postponed it because it became clear that the government`s Brexit deal would be rejected.   On the night before the new bill in the House of Commons, on June 11, 2018, Dominic Grieve tabled a last-minute amendment. The Lords amendment would prevent a “no-deal” scenario and MPs and Lords could ask May to return to the negotiating table and, for example, to get better. Grieve`s amendment also dealt with the “no deal” scenario, but set dates for May to return to Parliament and set out the government`s “no deal” intentions and get Parliament`s approval for those plans.  And in the House of Commons, during this afternoon`s debate on the Executive Formation Bill 2017-19, a “rebel” amendment requiring the House of Commons to sit and conduct proceedings before 31 October 2019 was passed by 315 to 274, a majority of 41. The advance is particularly interesting for anti-no-deal MPs, as a series of similar votes have previously been scraped with one or two votes in advance.
