After the WAB becomes law, the withdrawal agreement must also be ratified by the European Parliament. On July 24, 2018, the government presented a white paper on the bill and how legislation works.  The bill was first introduced by the government at the second session stagnated on 21 October 2019 by the government, entitled “A Bill to Implement, and make other provision in connection with, the agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU under Art 50, paragraph 2 of the Treaty on European Union which sets the arrangements for the rekingdom from the EU”.  This bill was not discussed further after second reading in the House of Commons on October 22, 2019, and passed on November 6, when Parliament was dissolved in preparation for the 2019 general election. Ministers say they support the Dubs amendment principle, but the Brexit act is not the right way to do so. After both chambers approved the legislation, he obtained royal approval on January 23. Royal Assent is the approval of the monarch to include the bill in an Act of Parliament (Law). publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/58-01/0001/20001.pdf The bill was reintroduced immediately after the general election and was the first bill introduced in the House of Commons in the first session of the 58th Parliament with amendments to the previous bill by the re-elected government, and was read for the first time on December 19, just after the first reading of the Outlawries Bill and before the start of the debate on the Queen`s Speech. The second reading took place on 20 December, the third on 9 January 2020.
Lord Callanan (Conservative), Minister for Exiting the European Union, opened the debate on the bill and reacted on behalf of the government. Boris Johnson`s Brexit Law is just one step away from the law after it has completed its passage through Parliament. A total of five amendments to the bill have been sent to MPs for consideration by the Lords, including on the rights of EU citizens, the power of British courts to deviate from EU law and the independence of the judiciary after Brexit. It would have forced the government to commit to negotiating an agreement with the EU on refugee children – thereby hardening the promise of the existing law to make a declaration on the matter within two months. On November 13, 2017, Brexit Minister David Davis announced a new bill to enshrine the withdrawal agreement in national law through primary legislation. In further talks in the House of Commons, Davis said that if the UK decided not to pass the law on 29 March 2019, the UK would remain on track to leave the EU without a deal, having invoked Article 50 in March 2017, following the adoption of the Notification of Withdrawal Act 2017.  The bill, described by The Independent as the government that “ceded” to Conservative rebels, would have allowed MPs to review each “line by line” agreement and make changes.  Conservative MP Steve Baker wrote to The Times stating that the new bill “gives any agreement that we have a good reputation with the EU in British law” and that it is compatible with the referendum result of “giving more control over how we are governed by the British Parliament.”  Nevertheless, the peers decided not to continue the fight with the Commons and agreed to let the bill pass.
