The withdrawal agreement draft is already slated to be comprised of more than 400 pages of legal text.
Reaction to the Agreement
Addressing the deal, ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson stated that the agreement is "vassal state stuff" and said he would vote against the deal.
Conservative lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg said that Brexit plan should be blocked, as it"does not deliver on the vote of the British people."
"I hope the cabinet will block it and if not I hope parliament will block it. I think what we know of this deal is deeply unsatisfactory," Rees-Mogg told the BBC.
He also stated that according to the leaked deal, Northern Ireland would be under more control from Dublin, then from British Belfast.
