The British Parliament on Wednesday passed a bill on the withdrawal of Britain from the European Union.

The EU Withdrawal Bill had gone through rounds of debate in the British Parliament.

On Wednesday lawmakers in the House of Commons, the lower parliament chamber, voted 319 to 303 to reject an amendment which British Prime Minister Theresa May said was designed to tie the hands of the government in Brexit negotiations.

The vote defeated an attempt to secure a “meaningful vote” in parliament that could have potentially given MPs the power to stop Britain leaving the EU without a deal.

After the amendment was rejected, the EU Withdrawal Bill was passed in the House of Lords. The bill will gain the status of law after the Queen gives her approval.

May said the bill will ensure a “smooth and orderly” Brexit and is a crucial step in that process.
