`(aa) Section 8B or Part 1B of Annex 2 (powers related to Part 3 of the Withdrawal Agreement and Part 3 of the EEA-EFTA Separation Agreement) or on 22 January 2020, the Bill was passed by the House of Lords without further amendment. Home > United Kingdom > European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill 2019-20 receives the Royal Agreement of any reference (whatever the case) to a Union citizen or eea national, including a national of the United Kingdom (as defined in Article 2(d) of the Withdrawal Agreement) and (b) Section 7A of this Act (other directly applicable or directly applicable aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement), (b) Articles 158 and 160 of the Withdrawal Agreement (jurisdiction of the Court of Justice in respect of Part 2 and certain provisions of Part 5 of the Agreement), Section 20 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (treaties to be submitted to Parliament before ratification) do not apply to the Withdrawal Agreement (but this does not affect whether this Section applies as regards concerns an amendment to the agreement). A number of clauses in the previous version of the law have been deleted. On 23 January 2020, the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2019-20 received royal approval of the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 (the Act). Amendments made in the House of Lords to the bill were overturned by members of the House of Commons. After winning a Conservative majority in the election, the bill was revised and reintroduced on December 19 and passed second reading the following day. The revision of the law in December removed provisions made in previous versions for parliamentary scrutiny of the Brexit negotiations.  Described by The Independent as the government that would “emulate” the Conservative rebels, the bill as originally conceived would have allowed MPs to review any agreement “line by line” and make changes.  Conservative MP Steve Baker, who wrote for the Times, claimed that the new bill “gives a good rule of law to any deal we make with the EU” and that it is in line with the referendum result by “giving more control over how we are governed by the British Parliament”.  On January 21, 2020, the House of Lords passed the act after approving five amendments to it. . . .
