UK parliament votes for amendment on ruling out no-deal Brexit

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

British lawmakers on Tuesday (January 29) voted in favor of a proposal calling on the government to rule out leaving the European Union without a deal.

The 318 to 310 vote went against UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who says the only way to take a so-called 'no-deal' Brexit off the table is to vote in favor of an agreement with the EU.

The so-called Spelman amendment "rejects the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement and a Framework for the Future Relationship".

The amendment sends a signal that parliament as a whole opposes leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, which will happen by default on March 29 if no alternative is agreed, but it does not compel the government to prevent such a departure.

This vote is, however, non-binding, and Theresa May could still choose to ignore it.
