The amendment had been tabled by Conservative MP Sir Oliver Letwin and Labour MP Hilary Benn. Three ministers resigned from the government to vote for the proposal; Richard Harrington, Steve Brine and Alistair Burt.

In total, 30 Conservative MPs voted for the measure, with eight Labour MPs voting against.

In a victory for the government, MPs voted against a proposal from the former Labour Cabinet Minister Dame Margaret Beckett for Parliament to vote on a no-deal Brexit or a delay to leaving the EU, should the UK find itself seven days away from leaving the European Union without a deal.

In the third and final vote of the debate, MPs voted to approve the government motion as amended by Sir Oliver Letwin. It was the second government defeat of the night.
