The European Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs approved the Withdrawal Agreement, bringing Brexit one step closer, APA reports citing website of the European Parliament.

This was approved with a large majority of 23 in favour and three against. The full parliament plenary will vote on the deal next week.

Speaking following the vote, Mairead McGuinness MEP and first Vice-President of the European Parliament said it is welcome that the UK’s exit from the EU will be orderly – but called on the commission to be ready to provide funding for farmers next year, should no agreement be reached for the agri-food sector.
