David Davis must be able to come out and have a firm hand to negotiate…” Once again, instead of letting MPs through lobbies to indicate their electoral decision, all four votes took place at the same time as ballots.  In accordance with the February 27 request, the defeat of the second significant vote means that the government must immediately submit a request for withdrawal from the European Union without a withdrawal agreement. The motion, which blocked a no-deal Brexit, was introduced on March 13.   Two amendments to the amendment were put to the vote: the first, tabled by Caroline Spelman and categorically opposed to a no-deal in all circumstances, was adopted by 312 to 308; The second, the “Malthouse compromise”, which supported what is called a “Brexit managed no deal”, failed by 164 to 374. MEPs voted at second reading on the government`s withdrawal agreement. . . .
