In full: Boris Johnson's Brexit statement”

Lawmakers voted 322 to 306 for the bill, which will "withhold support" for a deal until legislation is passed to block a "no deal Brexit".

Sir Nicholas Soames - one of the 21 Tories to have the whip withdrawn - gave Number 10 hope when he told Newsnight on Thursday that he would vote in favour of the deal and that his 20 colleagues who had the whip removed would "by and large vote for it".

European Union leaders unanimously backed a Brexit deal with Britain on Thursday, leaving Prime Minister Boris Johnson facing a battle to secure the United Kingdom parliament's backing for the agreement if he is to take Britain out of Europe on October 31.

Last night, in a furious briefing war, Government insiders accused Mr Letwin of colluding with the leading QC who helped defeat Mr Johnson in the Supreme Court earlier this month and has been a leading player in anti-Brexit legal challenges. We will not give up!' Tory MP Owen Paterson added: 'Passing the Letwin Amendment and declining even to come to a verdict on the new Brexit deal just about sums up this rotten Parliament'.

President Macron said yesterday he did not want to make predictions but he thought that another extension would not be agreed and it was time to move on.

Plans to agree Mr Johnson's European Union deal were not voted on after the dramatic developments which saw MPs in favour of delaying the process secure a slender majority over the 306 who opposed the amendment.

Meanwhile, thousands of second referendum supporters have marched on Parliament asking for a vote on the deal.

It will be up to Commons Speaker John Bercow to decide whether the amendment will be voted on by MPs.

"Where there is a will there is a deal - we have one". Leader of the opposition party Jeremy Corbyn remarked that Johnson will be taken to court if he tries to defy Parliament.
