UK Parliament passes draft law on Brexit

The UK Parliament has passed the draft law on Brexit.

The draft law  aimed for the UK to start the process for removal of European Union laws has been passed through the first Parliamentary stage.

Conservative MPs have warned that Government’s controversial plans to remove European Union laws through executive order should be put aside.

The British Parliament yesterday approved the draft bill’s second reading with 326 votes in favour and 290 against. The vote followed nine hours of debate in which 107 MPs took part.

The draft switches over EU laws to UK laws. It eliminates the European Communities Act of 1972, which had resulted in the UK joining the European Economic Community.

According to a preliminary programme, a wide debate spread over eight days will be held on this draft between October and November.
