Likelihood of no-confidence vote in government increases after outcome
Thursday, June 13, 2019 – 6:26am
MPs have rejected a bid to take control of Parliament’s timetable, blocking the latest attempt to stop a no-deal Brexit.
Labour spearheaded the move, which would have given opponents of a no-deal Brexit the chance to table legislation to prevent the UK leaving without any agreement on the 31 October deadline. It was rejected by 309 votes to 298.
Sky News says the outcome means the government has “survived an attempt by the opposition to seize control of the House of Commons agenda”, while The Guardian says it hands Tory leadership frontrunner Boris Johnson “a boost”. The former foreign secretary has insisted that the UK must leave the EU by the end of October with or without a deal.
