Revealed: The Tories who rebelled against PM – and how your MP voted | Politics News

MPs have voted to rule out leaving the European Union without a deal by 321 votes to 278, in a fresh Commons defeat for the government.

Five cabinet ministers defied Theresa May by abstaining from the vote, while Sarah Newton resigned as work and pensions minister in order to vote in favour of rejecting a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances.

This is how the votes stacked up:

Two Labour MPs, Stephen Hepburn and Kate Hoey, voted against rejecting no-deal, while six Labour MPs abstained; Kevin Barron, Andrew Gwynne, Lindsay Hoyle, John Mann, Graham Stringer and Rosie Winterton.

A vote will now take place on Thursday on whether to extend Article 50 in order to delay the UK’s departure beyond the current 29 March deadline to 30 June.

If MPs support the motion, Mrs May will formally ask European leaders for the Article 50 process to be extended.

The EU27 must then unanimously agree to her request for it to go ahead.
