The Withdrawal Agreement Bill for the UK to leave the EU on 31st January 2020 has been approved by Parliament. The bill passed its second reading with a total of 358 to 234 votes. Parliament’s decision to approve the bill means that there will now be an implementation period’ between the UK and the EU until 31st December 2020, avoiding the "No Deal Brexit " scenario.

Now the hard work of reaching agreement in the UK's future relationship with the EU begins in earnest.
