Brexit bill approved by UK Parliament

Posted on: 14/03/2017

The U.K. government’s Brexit bill on Monday cleared parliament after the House of Lords voted down two amendments — protecting the rights of EU nationals in the U.K. and giving parliament a “meaningful vote” —  clearing the way for Theresa May to trigger Article 50.  

However, she won’t do it until the end of the month, Downing Street indicated Monday.

In the House of Commons May said the Article 50 bill will achieve royal assent “in the coming days,” formally allowing her to begin the process of withdrawing from the EU. She also confirmed she would return to the Commons once she has triggered Article 50.
