MPs vote by 412 to 202 to ask EU for Brexit to be delayed beyond 29 March.
The motion passed means Theresa May will now ask the EU for an extension to article 50 until 30 June 2019. If they agree – as most assume they will – the UK will not be leaving the European Union on 29 March.
In earlier reports, UK lawmakers rejected a move to support a second referendum on Brexit by 334 votes to 85. It’s a blow to campaigners for a so-called People’s Vote.
The cross-party proposal was the first time the House of Commons has held a formal vote on whether to endorse another referendum.
