MPs have rejected an effort by Labour and Tory rebels to take control of Parliament’s timetable, blocking the latest attempt to stop no-deal Brexit.
Members of Parliament voted by 309 to 298 against a motion tabled by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and supported by a cross-party group of MPs, including Conservative MP and former minister Oliver Letwin, which could have paved the way to preventing Britain leaving the EU without a deal.
The vote came just hours after the favourite to succeed Theresa May insisted that he would take Britain out of the EU on October 31, with or without a deal.
“After three years and two missed deadlines, we must leave the EU on October 31,” Boris Johnson said at a speech in central London.
