Index – Abroad – The British Parliament has decided on an important issue

515 deputies voted in favor of the agreement regulating trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 29 voted against and about a hundred abstained.

The deal was rejected by a number of senior members of the ruling Conservative Party, including two former prime ministers, Boris Johnson and Liz Truss.

According to his initial announcement, the House of Commons faction of Northern Ireland’s largest pro-British Protestant force, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), voted against the agreement.

However, the acceptance of the agreement with the European Union in the House of Commons was not in doubt for a moment, because in addition to the majority of the Conservative faction, the largest opposition faction, the Labor Party, and other opposition parties also announced in advance that they supported the Windsor Framework Agreement.

A new deal was necessary because of Britain’s exit from the European Union

Border control between Great Britain and Northern Ireland has been stopped because the British left the European Union, due to the Good Friday Agreement, there can be no border closure between Northern Ireland (part of the United Kingdom) and the Republic of Ireland (member of the European Union), while, due to Brexit , the exchange of goods had to be checked somewhere.

The Northern Ireland Protocol was going to do this between the island of Ireland and Great Britain, but the British refused to implement it, so a new agreement was reached between the Union and Great Britain after years of negotiations. This was passed by the lower house of the British parliament on Wednesday.
