Brexit: Theresa May survives no-confidence vote

Theresa May's government has survived a no-confidence vote in the UK parliament.

The motion, 'That this house has no confidence in Her Majesty's government,' failed 325-306.

It comes just a day after MPs voted against Ms May's Brexit deal, plunging the UK into the unknown just two months before the deadline for it to withdraw from the European Union.

"I'm pleased that this House has expressed its confidence in the government tonight," Ms May said to cheers from her side.

"I do not take this responsibility lightly, and my government will continue its work to increase our prosperity, guarantee our security, and to strengthen our union. And yes, we will also continue to work to deliver on the solemn promise we made to the people of this country to deliver on the result of the referendum and leave the European Union."

Ms May said she wants to meet with lawmakers from both sides of the House to work out a new Brexit deal.

"We must find solutions that are negotiable and command sufficient support in this House… We will return to the House on Monday to table an amendable motion and to make a statement about the way forward."

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said before discussions could take place, the government "must remove clearly, once and for all, the prospect of the catastrophe of a no-deal Brexit from the EU and all the chaos that would come as a result of that".

The Liberal Democrats also said a no-deal exit was "not an option", even if it meant rescheduling the March 29 deadline.

The Scottish National Party said it welcomed Ms May's offer of further talks, but a second referendum can't be ruled out.
