In voting on the #CooperBill, HoC has just agreed without division to amend the EU (Withdrawal) Act so that a future Statutory Instrument to amend 'exit day' in UK law would be subject to the negative scrutiny procedure, rather than the affirmative procedure as under original Act
Essentially, *if* #CooperBill becomes law with this amendment intact, this means a minister will be able to change 'exit day' under the EU(W)A unless either House objects. Currently, under the original EU(W)A, a minister can change 'exit day' only with the approval of both Houses
'Exit day' was already changed last week under the previous procedure, when the SI was got thru' both Houses in 3 days. But it'll need to be changed again next week. Fact that both Cooper & gov wanted to switch procedure suggests both realise time might be even tighter next week.
