The draft will be presented in British parliament next month

The British cabinet gave approval to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal on Wednesday, which will be presented in the House of Commons in December.

After a five-hour meeting, the PM secured the cabinet’s backing. She, however, was grilled by the MPs who had reservations about the agreement. The draft was opposed by nine cabinet members, including Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

May said that she is aware that the agreement will come under scrutiny and that the government may face problems getting it approved by parliament. But this deal is in the national interest of the country, she said.

“This deal, which delivers on the vote of the referendum, will bring back control of our money, laws and borders, ends free movement, protect jobs, security and our Union,” she said.

A 585-page draft document was agreed upon by the UK and European Union. The UK will exit the EU on March 29, 2019.

May is due to give a statement to the House of Commons Thursday morning.
