Legislation to allow UK to leave EU approved in parliament

A legislation to allow the United Kingdom to leave the European Union (EU) on January 31 with an exit deal was approved yesterday. Lawmakers voted 330 to 231 in favour of the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill. "It is time to get Brexit done. This bill does so," Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said while rounding up hours of parliamentary debate.

As the legislation now moves to parliament's upper chamber, it is likely to become law in the near future, leaving enough time to allow the country to leave at the end of the month with a deal with minimal economic disruption, according British media reports.

While Johnson is adamant that the free-trade deal he wants can be negotiated in time, his EU counterparts are less convinced.

Barclay said he will be out of job within weeks because his department will be scrapped once Britain leaves the EU on January 31.

“This bill will secure our departure from the European Union with a deal that gives certainty to businesses, protects the rights of our citizens and ensures we regain control of our money, our borders, our laws and our trade policy”, he added.
