Brexit: May statement on future votes and Article 50 extension

Theresa May tells MPs she does not want to extend Article 50 but MPs will get to vote on a "short, limited" delay to Brexit if they reject her deal and a no-deal exit.

Addressing the Commons, the prime minister set out a new timetable with a second meaningful vote to be held by 12 March, and if that is defeated, MPs will be asked if they support leaving the EU without a deal.

She told MPs the UK will only leave the EU with no deal if "there is explicit consent for that outcome."
