THE UK Parliament will get to vote on the final Brexit deal before the country leaves the EU, minister David Davis has told MPs.

He said the terms of the divorce, including any transition deal and agreement on citizen rights, would have to become law via new legislation.

And he said MPs would have the opportunity to reject or amend such legislation, saying ‘the agreement will only hold if Parliament approves it’.

The concession comes as MPs prepare to debate key Brexit legislation.

He did add that the UK will leave the EU in 2019 whether MPs support the Brexit deal or not.
