The prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed plans to delay the crunch Commons vote on her Brexit deal.
The Prime Minister has humiliatingly called off Tuesday’s Brexit vote to avoid defeat on an unprecedented scale that could prove fatal to her premiership.
Speculation had mounted on Monday that the vote on the Withdrawal Agreement would be postponed or scrapped in the face of an open revolt by Conservative MPs and fierce opposition from other sides of the House.
Theresa May confirmed the move in a statement to the Commons after a day of disarray and conflicting signals over whether the vote would be delayed.
It comes after at least eight Cabinet ministers pressed her in private to back away from what was looking like a defeat by 100 or more votes in the Commons.
