Brexit: MPs to vote on 29 March no-deal exit from EU

Countdown to Brexit 15 days until Britain leaves the EU

"That's why Members of Parliament must reject this deal tomorrow".

A amendment calling specifically for the extension of Article 50 in preparation for a second referendum was heavily defeated, gaining only 85 votes.

Tory former Brexit minister Steve Baker said he was "very confident" there won't be a general election. It mandates a short "technical" extension until June 30th IF her Withdrawal Agreement passes.

Theresa May is making a final bid to save her Brexit deal ahead of a crunch Commons vote. It wasn't as bad as the 230 vote defeat on January 16 - the biggest in British parliamentary history - but still pretty devastating.

She said the Government will continue to work to leave the European Union with a "good deal", adding on Mr Corbyn: "He doesn't agree with Government policy, he doesn't even agree with Labour Party policy".

"That's what the deal delivers, that's what I continue to work to deliver. Parliament must now take control of the situation". Tariffs would be maintained to protect some industries, including agriculture.

The PM had made a last-minute plea to MPs to back her deal after she had secured legal assurances on the Irish backstop from the European Union during late-night talks in Strasbourg on Monday.

But Corbyn made no mention of a second referendum - which the party is theoretically committed to supporting if it can not secure a general election - in his remarks after the vote, and hardly referred to it in his earlier speech in the Commons debate, it noted.

Some of her colleagues around the Cabinet table think it shows she has to tack to a closer deal with the EU.

On Wednesday morning the government announced that most imports into the United Kingdom would not attract a tariff in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The North West Cambridgeshire MP said: "Given no-deal Brexit is the Government's default position, will the Prime Minister kindly inform the House she will instruct the Chancellor to make available whatever funds are required to ensure the country is as best prepared as possible in the event we do leave on a no-deal basis".

Labour's Hilary Benn, pushing the cross-party amendment, said he was not seeking to specify what MPs should do next but instead "book a slot" to allow a debate on how to resolve Brexit.

Tory Brexiteer Peter Bone (Wellingborough) asked Mrs May to back the Malthouse amendment, which aims for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union without a deal but also secure a transition period until the end of December 2021.

The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the current impasse "can only be solved in the UK" and MPs must decide what they want rather than what they don't.
