Lawmakers voted by 391 to 242 against the deal, the second time they have defeated it.
The so-called "star chamber" which the ERG had assembled to scrutinise Mrs May's tweaked withdrawal agreement concluded that she had failed to deliver the "legally-binding changes" which it had demanded.
Andrea Leadsom, who manages government business in parliament, insisted however that "it is still our intention, if at all possible, to leave the European Union on March 29 with a good deal".

The tariffs, meant to be temporary, wouldn't apply to goods crossing from Ireland to Northern Ireland, raising fears the plan would fuel smuggling across the border. With cable still trading above the 1.3000 handle, it shows that traders aren't really pricing in high odds of a no-deal Brexit scenario as of yet.
But the rest of the EU is reluctant to postpone Brexit beyond the late May elections for the EU's legislature, the European Parliament.
