`Repeal bill' passes hurdle in reprieve for British PM May
After more than 13 hours of speeches for and against the legislation, which May says is essential for Brexit but critics describe as a Conservative government power grab, lawmakers voted 326 to 290 in favour of moving the EU withdrawal bill, or repeal bill, to the next stage of a lengthy lawmaking process.
"Labour will seek to amend and remove the worst aspects from the bill as it passes through parliament," [Labour's Brexit spokesman, Keir] Starmer said. "But the flaws are so fundamental it's hard to see how this bill could ever be made fit for purpose."
