Boris Johnson’s Conservative Government is set to add a new clause to the Brexit Bill to make it illegal for the UK Parliament to extend the Brexit process beyond the end of 2020.

The post-Brexit transition period, due to conclude next December, can currently be extended by mutual agreement for up to two years.

However, an amended agreement in the Commons, which is set to to be voted on this week, would rule out any extension.

Johnson has said his cabinet plans to ask the new Parliament to have its first debate and vote on the withdrawal agreement this Friday.
