UK Parliament Backs Brexit Bill

Britain’s upper chamber of parliament, the House of Lords, has passed the Brexit bill paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the EU.

The EU Withdrawal Bill was passed unamended after peers voted by 274 votes to 118 not to challenge the Commons again over the issues of EU residency rights and whether Parliament should have a veto on the terms of exit.
