London (Reuters) –
Following a resounding defeat of the proposed Brexit deal Tuesday, British Prime Minister Theresa May faced a non-confidence vote in the House of Commons.
The vote of 432 – 202 against the deal was the largest defeat in the House of Commons in almost a century.
The debate and vote today was to determine whether or not May’s government has the confidence of the House.
Members of the House voted 325 – 306 in favour of the PM.
It has been two and a half years since the country decided to leave the European Union. Britain has until March 29 to present its deal to the EU.
