While we were focussing on the forthcoming business and debate at the Reading Borough Council (RBC) full council meeting last week, our MPs Matt Rodda (Labour MP for Reading East and Shadow Minister (Transport) (Buses) and Alok Sharma (Conservative MP for Reading West and Minister of State, Department for Work and Pensions) were going their separate ways again on Brexit. On the order paper for 22 January was the approval of four statutory instruments (SI) relating to post-Brexit relations with the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey, and intellectual property rights. These were only four in a long series of similar legislation which is being put in place in preparation for leaving the EU. All the SIs were approved.
A division is a vote and you may need to examine the context of each vote to work out what it was about.
