MPs voted for the second time on different Brexit options. Here is how each proposal fared when put to the Commons.



Option C - Customs Union plan tabled by pro-EU Tory MP Ken Clarke

A plan for any Brexit deal agreed with the EU to include the UK remaining in a permanent customs union with the bloc.

Lost by 276 votes to 273 


Option D - Commons Market 2.0 tabled by Tory MP Nick Boles

The Norway Plus team have put forward a plan to renegotiate the future relationship part of the Brexit deal. It would keep the UK in the Efta, meaning staying in the single market and a customs union with the bloc.

Lost by 282 votes to 261


Option E - Second referendum tabled by Labour MP Peter Kyle

Conditional backing for the Brexit deal provided it is put to a nation-wide referendum. The amendment has the most signatories backing it of all those tabled.

Lost by 292 votes to 280


Option G - Prevent a  no-deal Brexit tabled by SNP MP Joanna Cherry

If no agreement is in place the days before exit day the Government must delay Brexit, then hold a vote in Parliament on whether or not to leave without a deal. If Parliament says no, the Government must revoke Article 50 and look into whether a Brexit deal can be agreed that could win the support of the public in a referendum.
