Britain's lower house of parliament approves bill to sever EU ties

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s lower house of parliament approved a bill on Thursday that will sever ties with the European Union, handing the legislation over to the upper chamber where it may face a more difficult journey.

Lawmakers voted 324 to 295 in favour of passing the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill in the 650-seat House of Commons.
