Text size Aa Aa

The US House of Representatives has narrowly approved the raising of the government’s debt ceiling for the next year.

The vote avoids a default that was looming at the end of the month and was achieved with no unrelated conditions being added.

The bill now passes to the Senate where debate is due to begin on Wednesday.
