MPs voted on Thursday and delivered a massive blow to Boris Johnson’s plans to suspend Parliament in an attempt for him to force through a no-deal Brexit.

Labour MP Hilary Benn amendment was approved by MPs by 315 votes to 274, with a majotiry of just 41.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer tweeted, “For Boris Johnson to try to shut down Parliament to force through a destructive ‘no deal’ Brexit would be a constitutional outrage. Now it would also be unlawful. A huge victory.”
