The UK Parliament has passed the Landmark Brexit Bill allowing Prime Minister Theresa May to start talks to leave the European Union.

The House of Commons rejected changes to the Bill on Monday and then sent it back to the upper chamber for them to vote again.

The House of Lords voted not to insist on its original amendments giving protections to EU citizens in a post-Brexit Britain and calling for a “meaningful vote” on any divorce deal.

Instead the Lords passed the House of Commons’ original proposals and now the bill is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law on Tuesday.

The new move has cleared the way for the Prime Minister Theresa May to trigger Article 50, beginning the process by which Britain will give up its membership of the European Union.
