Theresa May vows to leave Brexit bill 'unamended' despite it suffered a defeat in House of Lords

17:31, 2 March 2017

The bill on Britain’s exit from the European Union was not approved by the Upper Chamber of the British Parliament – the House of Lords.

The politicians demanded to add another regulation to the document - to guarantee European Union citizens the right to live and work in Britain even after Brexit. For now, the bill will be sent back to Parliament’s Lower Chamber.

The process will take at least two weeks. Earlier Theresa May called on the Lords to refrain from making amendments and adopt the document as it is, since she promised to launch the Brexit process till the end of March.
