British Queen Elizabeth II approved and signed the bill that allows Great Britain to leave the European Union. The bill was accepted by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, as the Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow announced.
“I have to notify the House in accordance with the Royal Assent Act 1967 that her Majesty has signified her royal assent to the following acts ... European Union Withdrawal Act 2018,” John Bercow said during a session of the house.
The Brexit date and time enshrined in the bill are 29 March 2019 at 11pm. Prime Minister Theresa May said the assent was a ”historic moment for the country, and a significant step towards delivering on the will of the British people.”
Also, the Brexit bill repeals the 1972 European Communities Act under which Great Britain became a member of the European Union and legislation.
