By 310 votes to 310, the result of the vote on the indicative votes is a tie!
And the last vote to be tied in the Chamber was, ironically, in a vote on the Maastricht Treaty with the European Union.
Speaker John Bercow intervenes afterward to say that he will be casting his vote against the amendment – meaning it is defeated.
He says it is not for the chair to “create a majority which does not otherwise exist”.
It means MPs will not be able to seize control of the parliamentary timetable on Monday to hold indicative votes on alternatives to the PM’s Brexit deal.
