(Go Down)
The Brexit bill has been approved by Parliament, allowing Theresa May to trigger Article 50 and begin the process of leaving the European Union. With no opposition from Labour, the House of Lords backed down in their attempts to amend the bill following an earlier vote in the Commons.

MPs rejected a Lords amendment to guarantee the status of EU nationals resident in the UK by a margin of 335 votes to 287. They also overturned a second amendment, which would have required the Government to grant Parliament a "meaningful" vote on the Brexit deal eventually secured by Mrs May, by 331 votes to 286. Theresa May looks set to wait until the end of the month before kicking off the two-year process of negotiating departure from the EU.
