If the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill passes it becomes an Act.

Does it also result in a treaty?

How could a future Government change the intergovernmental element of that Bill

  • 2
    The Bill is supposed to enshine the withdrawal agreement/treaty in domestic law, not the other way around. Unless you mean something else by "treaty"...

What is being negotiated between the UK Government and the European Union is a treaty between these two governments. If it gets ratified by both the UK and European parliaments, it will at that point become a treaty.

The European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill would enact in law what would be required to implement the treaty.
