British parliament passes Brexit Bill

Britain’s Parliament finally approve the terms of Brexit today, clearing the divided country’s exit from the European Union on 31st of January. The House of Commons will rush through a final day of hearings and ratify Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s divorce deal with Brussels.

British parliament has approved Brexit Bill after three days of debate, allowing it to leave the European Union by the end of this month.

House of Commons passed the bill by 330-231.

In a statement, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said he hoped the upper house would not try to delay the bill.

For much of the time since the 2016 Brexit Referendum, lawmakers have been deadlocked over how, when and even if Britain should leave its closest trading partners after nearly 50 years. MPs gave their initial blessing to the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill before Christmas and the government set aside just three days this week for detailed scrutiny of the complex text.
