France's lower house of parliament has approved a new anti-terrorism law intended to bring an end to a nearly two-year-long state of emergency.
The law will incorporate several measures first authorised under the emergency arrangement.
They include easier searches of homes and confining individuals to their home towns, without judicial approval.
Most people in France approve of the move, but it has been criticised by rights groups.
A state of emergency was first introduced after the attacks of 13 November 2015, when militants from so-called Islamic State (IS) killed 130 people in gun and bomb attacks in Paris.
It has since been extended six times, but there was a consensus that to continue with the state of emergency indefinitely would be undemocratic, the BBC's Hugh Schofield reports from Paris.
