Meliane Onn has voted in favour of the UK not leaving the EU without a deal. Martin Vickers voted that we can leave without a deal.
This historic vote went in favour of the UK not leaving without a deal.
MPs have voted to reject leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
Theresa May said there was a “clear majority” against a no-deal Brexit but the “legal default” was that the UK would leave without a deal on 29 March if no deal is reached.
MPs will now get a vote on delaying Brexit, said the prime minister.
That vote will take place on Thursday, and if it is passed – and the EU agrees to it – the UK will not leave the EU as planned on 29 March.
The government tabled a motion to prevent the UK from exiting the EU on 29 March without a deal, after MPs voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to reject her withdrawal agreement.
Let us know your thoughts, do you feel you have been represented by our MPs and do you think we will ever actually leave the EU.
On Thursday, MPs will be asked if they want to delay Brexit until 30 June – to allow the necessary legislation to get through Parliament.
But that is only if MPs back Mrs May’s deal by 20 March, the government says.
If they fail to back her deal by then, then the delay could be longer, Mrs May warned MPs, and it could clash with the European Parliament elections in May.
“I do not think that would be the right outcome. But the House needs to face up to the consequences of the decisions it has taken,” she said.
MPs also voted by 374 to 164 to reject a plan to delay the UK’s departure from the EU until 22 May 2019, so that there can be what its supporters call a “managed no-deal” Brexit.
This amendment was proposed by Prime Minister Theresa May’s former second-in-command, Conservative MP Damian Green, and was backed by prominent Conservative Brexiteers and Remainers.
It was known as the Malthouse Compromise – after Kit Malthouse, the government minister who devised it.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that Parliament must now take control of the Brexit process and his party will work across the House of Commons to seek a compromise solution.
A European Commission spokesperson said: “There are only two ways to leave the EU: with or without a deal. The EU is prepared for both.
“To take no deal off the table, it is not enough to vote against no deal – you have to agree to a deal.
“We have agreed a deal with the prime minister and the EU is ready to sign it.”
