What exactly happens if MPs pass indicative vote for Commons Market 2.0?

MPs have once again seized control of the Parliamentary schedule to hold indicative votes on the next steps for Brexit. There were eight options for indicative votes initially, but House Speaker John Bercow whittled these down to four. The four options that are up for votes are Motion C - Customs Union, Motion D - Common Market 2.0, Motion E - Confirmatory Vote and Motion G - Extension, or Revoking Article 50 or No Deal.

Indicative votes were held last week, but none of the options achieved a majority vote. 

Now, after Theresa May’s Brexit deal was voted against for a third time MPs will once more vote on options for Brexit. 

What happens if MPs pass an indicative vote for Commons Market 2.0? 

The indicative votes are a series of non-binding resolutions which the Prime Minister does not need to act on. 

The Commons Market 2.0 was put forward by Tory former minister Nick Boles, Labour’s Lucy Powell among others. 

This motion proposes UK membership of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and European Economic Area (EEA).

It allows continued participation in the single market and a "comprehensive customs arrangement" with the EU after Brexit. 

This customs arrangement includes a "UK say" on future EU trade deals and would remain in place until the agreement of a wider trade deal which guarantees frictionless movement of goods and an open border in Ireland.

Mr Boles spoke in favour of his common market 2.0 tonight, saying his constituents will breathe “a deep sigh of relief” if MPs can support one of the plans on the order paper.

The Common Market 2.0 motion has also been referred to as Norway Plus.

The MPs championing it say the motion would revert back to the type of economic relationship the UK had with the European Economic Community in the 1970s and 80s.
