The vote gives MPs the chance to introduce a law postponing the UK's departure from the European Union until 31 January, if by 19 October MPs have not approved a new deal or voted in favour of a no-deal exit.

After the vote, Downing Street said those Tory MPs who rebelled would have the whip removed, effectively expelling them from the parliamentary party. Earlier in the day Conservative MP, Phillip Lee, joined the Liberal Democrats meaning the government lost its working majority.
