Reading Time: < 1 minute

Boris Johnson has hailed a “new dawn” for Britain as he prepares to bring his Brexit Bill back to the Commons.

The Prime Minister said he will “finish the job” that was started in 2016 with the 52% Remain result and give “certainty” to businesses and the country by passing his Withdrawal Agreement in January.

As part of his general election pledge to have Brexit “decided” by Christmas, the Conservative Party leader will bring back the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill before MPs for its second reading in the House of Commons.

After Mr Johnson won a landslide at the general election and secured an 80-seat majority, the vote in the afternoon is expected to pass without a hitch for the Government.

Announcing the timetable for the bill’s passage through the Commons in a statement to MPs, the Leader of the Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, said the remaining stages would be on 7, 8 and 9 January before it goes to the Lords.
