MADRID - Catalonia's parliament on Wednesday passed a law to make formal its plans for an Oct. 1 referendum on whether to declare independence from Spain, a vote that the central government says is illegal and that it will stop.

A majority of the regional parliament, which is controlled by pro-independence parties, voted in favour of the referendum law and the legal framework needed to set up an independent state.
