The United Kingdom would continue to benefit from all programmes, as it did before the withdrawal, provided it complied with current EU legislation.  Other EU Member States should face changes in EU budgets, electoral allocations and policies induced by the withdrawal of a Member State.  On 22 October 2019, the House of Commons agreed, by 329 votes to 299, to give a second reading to the revised withdrawal agreement (negotiated by Boris Johnson earlier this month), but when the accelerated timetable it had proposed did not receive the necessary parliamentary support, Johnson announced that the legislation would be paused.   An analysis of the procedure of the law published by the Institute of Government examines the contract approval procedure, which is defined in the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (CRAG) and which may apply to the withdrawal agreement and the framework agreement for future relations, as they contain. The procedure could prevent ratification, but in exceptional cases, a government can ratify a treaty without consulting Parliament.  The UK and the EU have begun negotiations with different perspectives on the basis of the bill. The British side regarded them as a payment for preferential access to the European single market, while the EU saw them as an obligation to allocate previous commitments to the financing of the budget cycle until the end of 2020 and its share of longer commitments. In December 2017, negotiators agreed on the scope of these commitments and the methods used to assess them. An analysis in 2019 showed that after the Brexit referendum, British businesses have significantly joined the EU, while European companies have reduced new investment in the UK.
 The UK government`s analysis of Brexit, which leaked in January 2018, showed that UK economic growth would be slowed by 2 to 8% in the 15 years since Brexit, depending on holiday scenarios.   Economists have warned that London`s future as an international financial centre depends on passport agreements with the EU.   Pro-Brexit activists and politicians have spoken out in favour of negotiating trade and migration agreements with CANZUK countries – Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom   — but economists have said that trade agreements with these countries would be far less valuable to the UK than EU membership.    Studies suggest that Brexit will exacerbate regional economic inequality in Britain, as regions already in difficulty will be most affected by Brexit.  In September 2019, the Labour Party adopted the position of holding a public vote on negotiating or maintaining the withdrawal agreement.  The bill proposed that a “public vote” (referendum) be held in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar before 1 February 2019 on whether to support the proposed withdrawal agreement, whether the UK would withdraw from the European Union or reject the proposed agreement and remain a member of the EU. The British Parliament adopted the European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019, which received approval on 9 September 2019, and obliged the Prime Minister to seek a third extension in the absence of an agreement at the next European Council in October 2019.  In order for such an extension to be granted if requested by the Prime Minister, it would be necessary for all other EU heads of government to give their unanimous consent.  On 28 October 2019, the third extension was agreed by the EU with a new withdrawal period until 31 January 2020.  The “day of withdrawal” of UK legislation was then amended by a legal instrument on that new date on 30 October 2019.  After a meeting to discuss recent developments in the negotiations, when the European Union`s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, repeatedly told the Prime Minister that the EU would not declare itself ready to discuss trade until an agreement on withdrawal conditions had been reached, the Prime Minister informed the House of Commons July 2, 2018, that
