Conservative majority House of Commons passes Brexit law with 358 votes in favor.
The bill, which sets out the legal framework under for Brexit and implements the agreement negotiated with the European Union, was approved on the 20th of December with 358 votes in favor and 234 against. The vote came as no surprise, since after the last elections the Conservative party won an absolute parliamentary majority.
Boris Johnson’s plan thus moves to the next phase. The deputies will debate it again and add some amendments, and then vote again. After that, this topic will go to the House of Lords for final approval.
It is important to remember that the UK’s departure date from the European Union is to be held on the 31st of January.
