The government bill on the conditions of exit of Britain from the EU has passed through Parliament, despite the resistance of the deputies of the ruling Conservative party.
The house of lords on Wednesday adopted an amendment to the bill received from the house of Commons. This means that now the bill goes for signature to the king, after which the document becomes law.

The vote of the house of lords marks the end of many months of discussions on the law, which will formally complete the membership of Britain in the European Union.
Prime Minister Theresa may called the bill “an important step” in ensuring “smooth” Brexit.
