MPs may have run out of options to block no-deal Brexit

UK PM Candidate Hunt Says: Parliament Likely to Block a No-Deal Brexit

Leadership hopefuls Rory Stewart and Mark Harper have both said leaving without a deal is unacceptable, but chose not to support the Labour motion.

This is also a bit troubling considering parliaments history of repeatedly rejecting Brexit deals that have been proposed to them and there is still worry that whoever replaces former Prime Minister Theresa May might attempt to move the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a deal.

Labour sources admitted that there was concern that Tories who may be inclined to back the motion would instead remain loyal to the party line until a new leader had been chosen.

Shadow Brexit minister Jenny Chapman said the vote on blocking a no-deal Brexit was a "safety valve" aimed at Tory leadership contenders trying to freeze MPs out of the decision.

The head of the Institute of Directors (IoD) said Britain risked wasting the Brexit delay granted by Brussels until October, saying many "seem to have forgotten" the need to secure a deal as soon as possible.

It has previously been reported that Labor meant to push forward a deal that would allow opponents of a no deal Brexit to take control of parliament's timetable in an effort to stop a possible no deal Brexit from moving forward.

Business can have no absolute reassurance that an agreement will be reached, particularly given the commitment of some Conservative leadership candidates to leaving the European Union in October with or without a deal.

MPs voted 309 to 298 against the measure which would have enabled politicians to size control of the House of Commons later this month.

He said "delaying this does not stop no-deal being the ultimate default end point, what it does it put it further into the future". Before I could serve in any government I would want to look at the policies that the prime minister was setting out.

"I do not think we will end up with any such thing, but it is only responsible to prepare vigorously and seriously for no deal".

"It's not that the Brexit uncertainty and fear of no deal is going to have an impact in the future".

In the debate preceding the vote, Starmer claimed that MPs had been forced to act due to declared intentions by Tory leadership candidates such as Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to prorogue parliament.

Sajid Javid, the last of the 10 candidates to launch his campaign ahead of Thursday's first round of voting, dismissed Mr Johnson as "yesterday's news", saying the party needed to show it had changed.
