Don't throw Brexit into chaos, United Kingdom minister warns before parliament vote

Frances O'Grady

May welcomed the Commons vote, saying the bill offered "certainty and clarity" - but Labour described it as an "affront to parliamentary democracy", the BBC reported.

It will also convert all existing European Union laws into United Kingdom law, ensuring there are no gaps in legislation for the Brexit process.

But lawmakers voted by 318 to 301 to support the so-called program motion, which sets out the timetable for the remaining stages of the bill's progress through parliament's lower House of Commons.

The UK has the largest defence budget in the European Union and, along with France, is one of only two countries in the bloc with permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council.

"Businesses and individuals need reassurance that there will be no unexpected changes to our laws after exit day and that is exactly what the repeal bill provides". The government has said those powers will not be used for any significant changes but rather for technical amendments and only for a limited time.

Despite attempts from Labour, the Liberal Democrats and Scottish National Party to band together in opposition to the bill, the post-midnight vote was a comfortable victory for May.

He said the UK's commitment to European security was "undiminished".

The bill hands that job to ministers who are appointed by the prime minister.

However, those opposed to the bill fear it gives ministers the power to make changes to laws during the process without consulting MPs.

He said: "Labour will seek to amend and remove the worst aspects from the bill but the flaws are so fundamental it's hard to see how this could ever be made fit for goal".

The paper also offers to agree joint foreign policy positions with Brussels, including cooperating on global sanctions against states or terrorist organisations.

"The challenge now is for MPs across the chamber to unite behind a common goal in ensuring that this United Kingdom government is prevented from railroading further Brexit legislation through that risks the very foundations of devolution", the SNP's global affairs spokesman, Stephen Gethins, said.

Britain will offer the European Union a "deep security partnership" against terrorism, cyber crime and illegal immigration, it will say.
