UK opposition Labour: lawmakers must reject PM May's Brexit deal

But dismissing calls from Tory MPs to embrace a no-deal exit now, Mrs May said her deal remained the best way to honour the 2016 referendum result.

He said: "'The unilateral statement is a weak Government trying to fool its own backbenchers because the European Union has not even signed up to it".

Dr Wollaston added on her second referendum proposal: 'For young people in this country, they face being wheeled into the operating theatre for major constitutional, social and economic surgery based on a consent form that was signed by their grandparents almost three years ago'.

Conservative MP John Baron then pushed Mrs May to back a no-deal Brexit, arguing "no deal is better than a bad deal".

"This is the moment and this is the time", she said.

Mr Lidington said there would be "consequences" of a longer extension to the Brexit process, including the need to hold European Parliament elections in May.

"The prime minister doesn't seem to understand - her deal has been flatly rejected twice by this house by unprecedented majorities", Corbyn said, saying May had "refused to listen" to business groups and others throughout the process.

Should MPs vote against a no-deal Brexit, then they will return to the Commons tomorrow to decide whether Article 50 should be extended. "Parliament must now take control of the situation". It should be noted that the votes are not legally binding and a no-deal Brexit on March 29 is still a possibilty unless the two sides reach a deal.

But Downing Street sources denied a suggestion circulating at Westminster that the Prime Minister "went batshit" at the rebels during the Cabinet meeting.

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

Although the PM managed to convince about 40 Tory MPs to change their mind, it was not almost enough to overturn the historic 230 vote defeat she suffered on the same deal in January.

Some of them believe it's time now to go hell-for-leather to leave without an overarching deal but move to make as much preparation as possible, and fast.

Discussions with the DUP are ongoing, but no formal decision on the next vote has yet be announced. "So can the prime minister tell us, exactly what her plan is now?"

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.

Ahead of the no-deal Commons vote, the government announced that most imports into the United Kingdom would not attract a tariff in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

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. Tariffs would be maintained to protect some industries, including agriculture.
