Johnson Brexit Passes

Boris Johnson's Brexit legislation has been backed by Members of Parliament by 330 votes to 231.

This marks a historic moment in the Brexit process.

The vote comes ahead of the UK's scheduled departure from the EU on March 31.

The legislation could face a somewhat more difficult passage through the Lords, where the government has no majority.

Theresa May failed repeatedly to pass her Withdrawal Agreement with the EU through the House of Commons.
