May laughed at after she confirms last-minute delay of historic Brexit vote

Doubt cast over tomorrow’s crucial Brexit deal vote

Doubt cast over tomorrow’s crucial Brexit deal vote

"It is clear to us that Theresa May will not renegotiate the deal when she goes to Brussels, and will only be asking for reassurances from European Union leaders".

'She had to delay the vote, but it leaves us in a terrible position, ' said one source.

Mr Gove confirmed that Mrs May was trying to get a better deal in Brussels: "If there is more that can be secured then there's no one better placed to get the concessions", he told the BBC's Today Programme.

"I am determined to do all I can to secure the reassurances this House requires to get this deal over the line and deliver for the British people".

"Even though I voted Remain, from the moment I took up the responsibility of being Prime Minister of this great country I have known that my duty is to honour the result of that (referendum) vote", she said.

"We will not renegotiate the deal, including the backstop", he tweeted, referring to the contested clause in the deal relating to Northern Ireland.

She did not put forward a new date for the vote, which may not be held at all if she is unable to sway MPs and decides no-deal is the only option left.

The embattled Prime Minister is meeting the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Hague before talks with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

The issue of the Irish backstop - the back-up plan to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland if a free trade agreement can not be reached before the end of the transition period - remains the most significant hurdle to securing parliamentary support.

EU Council leader Donald Tusk vowed to try to help her win MPs round.

European Council President Donald Tusk has organised a meeting for Thursday to make preparations, saying: "We will not renegotiate the deal, including the backstop, but we are ready to discuss how to facilitate United Kingdom ratification".

There was little sign that MPs would come to a compromise yesterday.

"From listening to those views it is clear that while there is broad support for key aspects of the deal, on one issue, the Northern Ireland backstop, there remains widespread and deep concern".

In a statement to MPs, Mrs May also said the Government was stepping up preparations for a possible no-deal Brexit.

Hours after the humiliation of scrapping a Commons vote on her withdrawal agreement, she headed off on a frantic tour of European capitals.

Mr Corbyn said: "The Government has lost control of events and is in complete disarray".

Labour's Lloyd Russell-Moyle was escorted from the Commons last night after grabbing the mace - a symbol of parliament's authority - in an apparent protest over the vote being axed.
