This is the Bill as amended by the House of Lords (the Upper Chamber of Parliament). It is unlikely that this version will be accepted in the House of Commons.

Section 1 Power to notify withdrawal from the EU

(1)The Prime Minister may notify, under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU.

(2)Within three months of exercising the power under subsection (1), Ministers of the Crown must bring forward proposals to ensure that citizens of another European Union or European Economic Area country and their family members, who are legally resident in the United Kingdom on the day on which this Act is passed, continue to be treated in the same way with regards to their EU derived-rights and, in the case of residency, their potential to acquire such rights in the future.

(3)This section has effect despite any provision made by or under the European
Communities Act 1972 or any other enactment.
