The Bill completed its Committee Stage on the Floor of the House of Commons on 20 December 2017. An amendment was made by the Government to give a concession on scrutiny of subordinate legislation under the Bill, which had been a key concern on both sides of the House. The Bill completed its Commons stages with Report and Third Reading Stage on 16 and 17 January 2018. The Bill has now started its passage in the House of Lords. Consideration in the House of Lords is expected to be protracted, with the present timetable for Committee extending to the end of March.

It is difficult to see how the question in a second referendum, or indeed on a Parliamentary vote on the deal, could be anything other than academic: the process of leaving is probably irreversible, in terms of practical politics even if not in strict legal terms, and a mere expression of opinion by the public or Parliament that the UK should remain in the EU would have no power to stop the process or alter its terms.
