(Update 1: changes headline, re-ledes with results of votes in Parliament)

London, Oct 22 (efe-epa).- UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday managed to garner the preliminary support of Parliament for his Brexit agreement, but the body rejected the Conservative leader's plan to pass the necessary enabling legislation in the space of just three days.

The support of the most Euroskeptical sector of the Conservative Party and of 19 rebel lawmakers from the Labor Party opposition gave Johnson a comfortable majority of 30 votes - 329 to 299 - in the House of Commons.

Despite having given the green light to the terms of the pact, the members refused to deal in just three days with the law that would implement them - a dense text of 110 pages that the government published on Monday evening - as Johnson had been demanding.
