Opposition to Brexit-bending bill grows despite vote

By EARLE GALE in London | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-09-16 00:00

Several British politicians, including lawmakers from Prime Minister Boris Johnson's ruling Conservative Party, have said a proposed bill that would give the government the power to break international law risks seriously damaging the nation's reputation.

The warnings were made before, during, and after a five-hour debate in the House of Commons on Monday night that the government won by 340 votes to 263, a comfortable margin that belies the controversy surrounding the Internal Market Bill.

House of Commons committees will now debate the proposed legislation in detail before it returns to the main chamber for another vote.
