The house of Commons of the UK Parliament on Thursday, March 14, refused to support the holding of a second referendum on leaving the EU.

“For” a proposal voted only 85 deputies, “against” vote of 334 members of the house of Commons. About it writes DW.

The proposal to bring the issue to a vote was put forward by opposition MPs, a new party, the Independent Group and some Pro-European conservatives.

Previously, the largest opposition labor party said it would support a second referendum on the country’s withdrawal from the European Union.

To the vote on Thursday issued a number of initiatives, including the proposal for the third time to vote for the agreement with the EU which deputies twice rejected. If the consideration of these applications will end in vain, on the agenda will be the question of postponement of the country’s withdrawal from the European Union. On the eve of the parliamentarians voted against secession from the EU, without entering into any agreement with Brussels.

At the moment, the exit from the EU is scheduled for March 29. While the Parliament does not agree on a deal between the British government and the EU on exit from the block, the threat of a “hard” Brexit. The UK government has already introduced measures in this case. In particular, London is planning to abolish duties on the import of large quantities of goods from abroad, and will not impose a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, including control over the import and export of goods. These events plan to apply before the final settlement of a British exit from the European Union.

We will remind, on June 23, 2016 in the UK held a referendum, in which 51.9% of the electorate voted for the country’s withdrawal from the EU.
