Boris Johnson's Brexit deal has cleared its first Commons hurdle after a Parliamentary vote.
MPs approved giving the Withdrawal Agreement Bill a second reading by 358 votes to 234 - a majority 124.
It was the first chance MPs had to vote on the deal since the Conservatives' landslide election win last week.
The prime minister has insisted that 'Leave' and 'Remain' labels are now defunct and the country should "move on" ahead of the scheduled EU exit on January 31.
"Now is the time to act together as one reinvigorated nation, one United Kingdom, filled with renewed confidence in our national destiny and determined at last to take advantage of the opportunities that now lie before us," he told the House of Commons.
"We will be able to move forward together. The Bill ensures that the implementation period must end on January 31 with no possibility of an extension.
"And it paves the path for a new agreement on our future relationship with our European neighbours based on an ambitious free-trade agreement, with no alignment... on EU rules, but instead control of our own laws and close and friendly relations.
"This vision of the United Kingdom's independence, a vision that inspires so many, is now if this Parliament, this new Parliament allows, only hours from our grasp.
"The oven is on, so to speak, it is set at gas mark 4, we can have it done by lunchtime, or late lunch."
He confirmed Labour would not support the Bill because the party believes there is a "better and fairer way for this country to leave the European Union".
