UK lawmakers approve Brexit bill
The Brexit bill was approved by UK Parliament's upper chamber after the House of Lords abandoned attempts to amend it, leaving the UK on course to leave the European Union next week.
The bill was approved after the House of Commons overturned changes to the bill made a day earlier by the House of Lords. It will become law when it receives royal assent from Queen Elizabeth II, a formality that could come today.
Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union on Jan. 31, more than three and a half years after voters opted for Brexit in a June 2016 referendum, and after many rounds of political wrangling, the AP reported.
