MPs voted on Thursday by 413 to 202 - a majority of 211 - for Prime Minister Theresa May to ask the EU for a delay to Brexit. This means the UK may not now leave on 29 March as previously planned. Mrs. May says Brexit could be delayed by three months, to 30 June, if MPs back her deal in a vote next week.
Members of Parliament will vote later on Thursday whether to ask the EU for permission to delay Brexit beyond the 29 March departure date. It comes after MPs voted on Wednesday evening to reject a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances. Prime Minister Theresa May could also make a third attempt to get her EU withdrawal deal through Parliament in the next few days.
