Queen approves Brexit law

Legislation passed in the British Parliament, which defines the terms of application of Brexit and the UK Withdrawal Agreement, is already law, after having received the royal seal.

The document was approved in the House of Lords after the deputies of the House of Commons failed the five proposals to amend the text.

The amendments had been approved during the Monday and Tuesday debates in the upper house of parliament but the Conservative party, with its comfortable majority in the House of Commons, rejected them, returning the document that it would eventually pass.

After completing the parliamentary process, the document lacked only the seal of Queen Elizabeth II to be promulgated.

January 31st is the stipulated date for leaving, so now only the exit agreement is yet to be ratified by the European Parliament, in order to complete the process, which should happen during next week.
