Brexit begins: Parliament approves PM Boris Johnson’s plan to leave EU

Parliament voted 358 to 234 in favour of the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, which begins the process negotiated with the EU for the UK to leave. Brexit will occur on 31 Jan. 2020 -- the bill bans an extension -- but there is a transition period where the UK is still subject to many EU rules for more than a year. PM Boris Johnson said that new trade deals would be done before the transition ends.
