UK House of Commons approves Brexit delay law
The British House of Commons on April 4 approved a legislation put forward by opposition Labour Party lawmaker Yvette Cooper that will force Prime Minister Theresa May to seek a delay in Brexit to prevent a disorderly no-deal departure on April 12. Meanwhile, May wrote to the European Union (EU) requesting a further delay to Brexit until 30 June.

The vote was approved by 313 to 312. It now has to pass the House of Lords.

The bill requires May to get Parliament's approval for the detail of any delay and allows lawmakers to propose a different length of extension, according to global news wires.

To avoid an abrupt no-deal Brexit on April 12, May must soon present a summit of EU leaders with a plausible strategy to win approval in parliament for the Withdrawal Agreement that she negotiated with Brussels.

The British Government said there were many flaws with the legislation, including the lack of time available for all the steps it sets out, and had concerns about the precedent it set. (DS)
