The House of Lords has approved a bill to delay Britain’s exit from the European Union, until the end of January.
Its enactment is now subject to Royal Assent from the Queen.
The bill is designed to prevent Britain from leaving the EU without a deal, and would force British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to ask the EU to delay Brexit, if no deal is reached or if the Lower House does not agree to a “no-deal”, by October 19th.
Johnson wants Britain to leave by October 31st, even without a deal.
He plans to submit a motion to the House of Commons again on Monday, seeking a snap general election, to block the delay.
However, it would need the support of two-thirds of the House, and opposition parties agreed yesterday to oppose Johnson’s motion.
