payments to EU national employees seeking settled or pre-settled status to cover the cost of such

to income tax.

Clause  89,  page  67,  line  19,  at end insert—

 

“(7)    

The provisions of this section only come into force if—

 

(a)    

a negotiated withdrawal agreement and a framework for the future

 

relationship have been approved by a resolution of the House of

 

Commons on a motion moved by a Minister of the Crown for the

 

purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act

 

2018, or

 

(b)    

the Prime Minister has notified the President of the European Council, in

 

accordance with Article 50(3) of the Treaty on European Union, of the

 

United Kingdom’s request to extend the period in which the Treaties

 

shall still apply to the United Kingdom, or

 

(c)    

leaving the European Union without a withdrawal agreement and a

 

framework for the future relationship has been approved by a resolution

 

of the House of Commons on a motion moved by a Minister of the

 

Crown.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment would prevent the Government implementing the “no deal” provisions of Clause

 

89 without the explicit consent of Parliament for such an outcome. It would provide three options

 

for the provisions of Clause 89 to come into force: if the House of Commons has approved a

 

negotiated withdrawal agreement and a framework for the future relationship; if the Government

 

has sought an extension of the Article 50 period; or the House of Commons has approved leaving

 

the European Union without a withdrawal agreement and framework for the future relationship.
