The British Parliament approved on Wednesday the first reading of the Brexit deal agreed on Christmas Eve between the European Union and the United Kingdom.

The bill was passed by 521 votes to 73.

All proceedings in committee were passed quickly after the first reading as there were no amendments. The bill will move on to the House of Lords and become an act of law once it is granted royal assent.
