    The UK House of Commons on Wednesday voted down a Brexit bill amendment to guarantee the rights of EU citizens to stay in the country after it leaves the bloc.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Labor-proposed amendment was rejected by a margin of 332 to 290.

    The vote supports the government's proposals to avoid guaranteeing the rights of EU nationals to stay in the country after Brexit until a final deal is reached with the European Union.

    Members of parliament are voting on a series of amendments to a bill which will allow the government to trigger article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and initiate Brexit negotiations. The bill will be voted on later in the day.
