MPs may have run out of options to block no-deal Brexit

MPs may have run out of options to block no-deal Brexit

Speaking in the Commons, Snell said ceramics firms asked him "time and time again" to back a deal so they could make preparations for the future while food manufacturers wanted him to make a decision so they could "get past stockpiling".

He added: "I voted against the Labour motion today because it was an attempt to take control of the order paper on a blank check".

The EU considers the Brexit deal, negotiated over 18 months, to be complete and not open to renegotiation.

"The odds that a deal is successfully ratified by end-October are now 25%, while the odds of a no-deal Brexit are 25% as well".

Britain could be heading towards a constitutional crisis over Brexit as numerous candidates vying to succeed Theresa May are prepared to leave the European Union on October 31 without a deal but the United Kingdom parliament has indicated it will try to thwart such a scenario, concerned about the potential economic disruption.

But he insisted Parliament "won't allow" the United Kingdom to leave without a formal deal in place, adding Brussels would not allow the deal to be renegotiated.

Some of the favourites to succeed May have suggested that the United Kingdom would leave the European Union at the end of October with or without an agreement in place.

If the vote was successful, they could have used their control of the Commons agenda on that day to bring forward legislation to prevent any future prime minister forcing through a no-deal Brexit.

"In fact, I think we're probably just going to get a fudged version of her deal".

"There will be other procedural mechanisms we can use", shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said.

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

Conservative opponents of no-deal and leadership candidates, Matt Hancock and Rory Stewart, revealed that they would vote against the motion.

The SNP's Europe spokesman Peter Grant said: "MPs had an opportunity to take steps to remove the threat of a disastrous no-deal Brexit".

Hammond, who sought assurances after becoming alarmed by the spending promises being made by Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab, disclosed that he had received private commitments from two campaigns. Had the motion been passed, it would also have had a major impact on the Conservative leadership race, wiping out the favored policy of some candidates, but as things stand, the prospect of a no-deal Brexit is now a lot more realistic.
