UK lawmakers reject opposition move to block no-deal Brexit

File Brussels said it would not enter talks on future trade until London honours UK PM Candidate Hunt Says: Parliament Likely to Block a No-Deal Brexit

Although the defeat closes off one route for parliamentarians to try and prevent a no-deal exit, the flexibility of Britain's parliamentary system means others could be found in the weeks and months ahead.

Opposition MPs have lost a crucial vote on an attempt to block a future Conservative prime minister from pursuing a no-deal Brexit.

Led by the main opposition Labour Party, a cross-party motion is calling for MPs to take control of the House of Commons on June 25 to introduce legislation to avoid a no-deal scenario on October 31, the deadline for Britain to leave the EU. "I would put Oliver Letwin right in the middle of that graveyard".

The vote, which they lost by 309 votes to 298, had been looking to take charge of the parliamentary agenda for June 25, and to get binding legislation passed that would eliminate the option of a no-deal Brexit, and also prevent future leaders from suspending Parliament to force through any such arrangement.

This comes as a cabinet note was leaked saying that the United Kingdom is not ready for a no-deal Brexit on October 31st.

Some MPs fear that a no-deal Brexit could cause some serious economic and political damage to the UK. Labour stands ready to use whatever mechanism it can to protect jobs, the economy and communities from the disastrous consequences of a no deal Brexit.

"Any Tory leadership candidate should know that parliament will continue to fight against no-deal".

But the motion was rejected by a margin of 11. Departing Prime Minister Theresa May tried and failed three times to convince Parliament to approve it.

The procedure is the same as one used by opposition MPs to block a no deal Brexit before the 29 March deadline.

In the debate preceding the vote, Starmer claimed that MPs had been forced to act due to declared intentions by Tory leadership candidates such as Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to prorogue parliament.

North West Cambridgeshire MP, Conservative Shailesh Vara, voted against the motion, as did Brexit Secretary and North East Cambridgeshire Steve Barclay, South Holland and The Deepings MP John Hayes and Corby MP Tom Pursglove. Hinting at a potential electoral wipeout and the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.
