May’s deal, no deal and delaying Brexit: How your MP voted | Politics News
MPs have decided to delay Brexit until at least 30 June after three days of dramatic votes in parliament.
A government motion requesting an extension to Article 50 beyond the original deadline of 29 March was passed by 413 votes to 202 – a majority of 211.
It meant success for Theresa May, who backed an extension, despite 188 Conservative MPs – including seven cabinet ministers – voting against her in a free vote.
Just 112 Tory MPs supported the motion.
This is how the votes on Thursday evening stacked up:
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, who had earlier put forward the motion in the Commons, ended up voting against it along with: Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, Commons leader Andrea Leadsom, International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt and Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss.
Meanwhile, Chief Whip Julian Smith, who is in charge of getting MPs to back the government, abstained from the vote.
The latest result comes after MPs voted to rule out leaving the EU without a deal and twice emphatically rejected Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement with the bloc.

The prime minister will now take her withdrawal agreement to a third “meaningful vote” in the Commons by 20 March.
If she succeeds, she will go to Brussels next Thursday to request a delay to Brexit lasting no later than until 30 June.
If Mrs May’s deal is rejected for a third time, she believes any extension would have to be far longer and would involve the UK taking part in European Parliament elections in May.
