The rebel bill may have passed in the Commons and Lords, However:
It has stopped no deal therefore an extension is almost certain. That means more payment must be made to the EU.
Only ministers can propose a bill with a fiscal component. I suspect Royal assent will not be forthcoming. As a result the bill is stranded and of no consequence.
