Labour's Yvette Cooper has expressed her delight tonight that the House of Commons voted for an amendment she had tabled to the government's finance bill, declaring on Twitter that it "shows the determination in Parliament to come together to prevent a chaotic & damaging #NoDeal that would hit manufacturing, policing & security".

MPs will vote on the deal she negotiated by the European Union on January 15 after days of debate in Parliament, Downing Street confirmed today.Mr Barclay will open the debate, and the Prime Minister will deliver the closing speech.

But as the Commons prepared to resume the debate on Theresa May's Brexit deal, leading to a crunch vote next week, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was an "important step" towards preventing a no-deal break with Brussels.

He said: "I want to make it abundantly clear to my honourable friends who are voting against the Prime Minister's deal, which I shall be supporting, that the majority in this house will sustain itself, and we will not allow a no-deal exit to occur on the 29th of March". "The government is attempting to force parliament to panic by refusing to take no deal off the table".

Debate on the deal is set to begin on Wednesday, with the vote due in the week beginning January 14.

LABOUR could hold a second referendum on a renegotiated Brexit deal if it won a general election, the shadow worldwide trade secretary said yesterday.

One of her predecessors as Tory leader, Iain Duncan Smith, wrote in the Mail newspaper on Sunday that "this deal simply doesn't work, and, far from securing Brexit, it shackles us to the European Union".

A "no-deal Brexit" is deemed to be the worst-case scenario, with serious implications for the UK's GDP, prices, stock and supply of medicines produced in Europe, movement of British and European citizens within Europe, and the ability of major UK-based banks and financial institutions to operate across Europe.

The vote was due to take place before Christmas but was postponed, reportedly because Theresa May did not manage to drum up sufficient Commons support for the agreement.

"I don't think anybody can say exactly what will happen in terms of the reaction we will see in Parliament".

She advised ministers to secure approval for a Brexit deal or get "explicit" agreement for a no-deal Brexit before March 29, adding: "Or if that fails, commit to seeking an extension to Article 50 so there is time to sort things out".
