Labour will back an amendment which would force Mrs May to delay Brexit if she can not get her deal through Parliament.

The motion was defeated, with 303 voting against and 258 voting in favor.

"What the analysis shows is that this is a strong economy that will continue to grow and that the model that actually delivers best on delivering the vote of the British people - and for our jobs and our economy - is the model that the government have put forward".

May lost support from both the hard-Leave and hard-Remain factions of her own party, leading to the motion failing.

Thursday's vote was meant to be pretty straightforward.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, though there is speculation that date could be extended as the United Kingdom continues its last-minute search for a deal.

Eurosceptic Conservatives are threatening to oppose the Government's motion when the Commons votes again on Brexit options on Thursday evening.

And she faces further opposition in the form of cross-party amendments from MPs - some who accuse the PM of "running down the clock" in an effort to "blackmail" Parliament into backing her deal.

Ministers have increasingly raised the fear a no-deal Brexit would fuel demands for a second referendum on Scottish independence and a border poll on Irish reunification.

On Tuesday, the government's chief Brexit negotiator Olly Robbins was reportedly overheard in a Brussels bar suggesting Mrs May was ready for a "long" delay rather than a no-deal Brexit. "I don't think anyone would like to see this stalemate or impasse or period of purgatory continue for months and months and months".

Soon thereafter, the session was adjourned, after Bercow had said "there is an Arsenal match on television very soon" - a reference to his and Corbyn's favorite football team in action in the Europa League against BATE Borisov. Result: failed by a margin of 322 to 306.

Another tabled by the SNP's Angus MacNeil calls on Mrs May simply to revoke the Article 50 letter informing the European Union of Britain's intention to leave.

This third amendment, led by the Conservative Anna Soubry and Labour's Chuka Umunna, could prove particularly problematic for Mrs May, who has lost previous votes calling for government documents to be published.

If she refused, he said "a dozen or even more" ministers may resign, including "up to half a dozen" from the Cabinet. "And that is a strategy that will not work out".

The Digital Minister told Channel 4 News: "I could not be part of a government that allowed this country to leave the European Union without a deal".
