Labour tables motion of no confidence in the government

Here's what you need to know about Brexit

Many opponents of Brexit hope May's defeat will ultimately lead to another referendum on European Union membership, though Brexiteers say that thwarting the will of the 17.4 million who voted for Brexit could radicalize much of the electorate.

The vote of "no confidence" will take place on Wednesday 16 January - the day after May's catastrophic failure in Parliament. Corbyn called for a no-deal scenario to be taken off the table.

It would appear unlikely Labour can muster enough votes to force a general election, with both Tory rebels and the DUP indicating they would continue to back the Government in a confidence vote. Mrs May will also speak in the debate and it will last until 1900 GMT.

MPs have voted 432 to 202 against Theresa May's Brexit deal.

Particularly when it came the contentious Irish backstop - an insurance policy to prevent the return of border infrastructure between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland - which has been a thorn in the side of May's deal.

May, who leads a fragile Conservative minority government, has made delivering Brexit her main task since taking office in 2016 in the wake of the country's decision to leave the EU.

Mrs May will address her cabinet on Tuesday morning, before the debate resumes at lunchtime. MPs simply must agree a deal, and fast'.

About 100 Conservative MPs and the Democratic Unionist Party's 10 MPs could join Labour and the other opposition parties to vote it down.

On Monday, he said May has failed to get the legal assurances she promised and the House would vote on exactly the same "botched" deal.

Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said it showed there had been "progress" but admitted to the BBC's Politics Live that gaining support was "challenging".

It had been feared that the pound would tank further if Parliament rejected the deal with a large majority.

The scale of the opposition means it is not credible Mrs May could bring the motion back to the Commons, modified with a few tweaks from Brussels, and hope for success a second time round.

Speaking at a factory in Stoke-on-Trent Monday, and later on in the House of Commons, May also ruled out extending the March 29 deadline for Britain's departure from the EU.

Scores of her own MPs - Brexiteers and supporters of European Union membership alike - joined forces to vote down the divorce deal. "The Labour party will not be held to ransom".

MPs will be asked to vote on a motion: "That this House has no confidence in Her Majesty's Government".

Counsel General Jeremy Miles said there was no need for people to make changes in their day-to-day lives to get ready for a possible no-deal. Thanks to amendments added to her bill, an alternative must now be presented to parliament within three days.

This comes from both those who voted leave and remain.

If the majority of MPs vote that they have no confidence in the government, then the government will fall.

'We will respect that over the coming weeks'.

This is how our four local MPs will be voting tonight.

The humiliating rebuff was delivered in the House of Commons just moments after the Prime Minister made a last-ditch appeal for MPs to back the Withdrawal Agreement which she sealed with Brussels in November after nearly two years of negotiation.

The CBI, the UK's biggest business lobby group, has warned a "no-deal" Brexit is a threat to jobs and growth.

The EU had earlier ruled out any more talks. "A No Deal Brexit would damage the economy and, particularly, our farms as it could result in tariffs of more than 40 per cent put on beef and sheep meat". That means the prices of some goods in United Kingdom shops could go up. "We will be looking with to work with Parliament", she said. They say criticism is scaremongering and any short term pain would be for long term gain.

"I shouldn't pretend to anyone that any country can be fully prepared for Brexit, there is no good Brexit and a no-deal Brexit will have a very significant impact on Ireland, Britain and Europe".
