European Parliament to vote on Brexit trade deal Tuesday

LONDON — The European Parliament will vote to ratify the EU-U.K. Trade and Cooperation agreement on Tuesday.

The vote has been added to the agenda of next week’s plenary session, according to Jaume Duch, spokesperson for the Parliament.

MEPs will hold a debate and a consent vote accompanied by a resolution on Tuesday, just four days ahead of the end of the temporary application period on April 30.

The Parliament’s foreign affairs and trade committees voted in favor of the agreement last week, paving the way for its expected ratification by the plenary.

The deal, which has already been ratified by the U.K., conditionally came into force on December 31, 2020.
