On 22 October 2019, the House of Commons agreed, by 329 votes to 299, to give a second reading to the revised withdrawal agreement (negotiated by Boris Johnson earlier this month), but when the accelerated timetable it had proposed did not receive the necessary parliamentary support, Johnson announced that the law would be overturned.   It is also in talks with countries such as the United States and Australia. But none of these trade agreements have yet been concluded. The agreement also provides for a transitional period, which will last until 31 December 2020 and can be extended by mutual agreement. During the transitional period, EU legislation will continue to apply to the UK (including participation in the European Economic Area, the internal market and the customs union) and the UK will continue to contribute to the EU budget, but the UK will not be represented in EU decision-making bodies. The transition period will give businesses time to adapt to the new situation and the new era, so that the British and European governments can negotiate a new trade agreement between the EU and the UK.   The following day, the Council was published. The question was: “What is the legal effect of the United Kingdom`s approval of the protocol to the withdrawal agreement of Ireland and Northern Ireland, including its effects in connection with Articles 5 and 184 of the main withdrawal agreement?” The Council proposes:  The UK and the EU are negotiating a trade agreement that is due to start on 1 January 2021, when the new uk-EU relationship will begin. The UK-EU Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement is a draft free trade agreement between the UK and the European Union, which is expected to be signed before the end of the transition period in December 2020.   As of October 31, 2020[update], there is no such agreement, and discussions on the continuation of the agreement. Trade negotiations began on 31 March 2020 and are expected to be completed by the end of October 2020, after which the draft treaty will have to be ratified by both sides to enter into force on 1 January 2021.
A draft agreement was not reached until the end of October and negotiations continued until November, as important issues were not resolved.

The withdrawal agreement provides for a transitional period until 31 December 2020, during which time the UK will remain in the internal market, to ensure the smooth flow of trade until a long-term relationship is concluded. If no agreement is reached by then, the UK will leave the single market without a trade deal on 1 January 2021. The withdrawal agreement is closely linked to a non-binding political declaration on future relations between the EU and the UK. On 15 January 2019, the House of Commons voted with 230 votes against the Brexit withdrawal agreement the largest vote against the British government in history.  The government may survived a vote of confidence the next day.  On March 12, 2019, the House of Commons voted 149 votes against the agreement, the fourth-biggest defeat of the government in the history of the House of Commons.  A third vote on the Brexit withdrawal agreement, widely expected on 19 March 2019, was rejected by the House of Commons spokesman on 18 March 2019, on the basis of a parliamentary convention of 2 April 1604, which prevented British governments from forcing the House of Commons to vote several times on a subject already voted on by the House of Commons.
