Their face-to-face talks are due to start in an hour. Earlier in the day Downing Street insisted that the Prime Minister would stick to her promise to give the Commons a “meaningful vote” on her Brexit deal tomorrow.

With the country’s very future hanging in the balance, MPs will have to wait until later this evening to get even a hint of what they will be voting on.

Brexit: British PM May's revised deal rejected by Parliament



Britain’s parliament rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s European Union divorce deal for a second time on Tuesday, deepening the country’s worst political crisis for generations, 17 days before the planned departure date.

Lawmakers voted against May’s amended Brexit deal by 391 to 242 as her last-minute talks with EU chiefs on Monday to assuage her critics’ concerns ultimately proved fruitless.

The vote puts the world’s fifth largest economy in uncharted territory with no obvious way forward: exiting the EU without a deal, delaying the March 29 divorce date, a snap election, or even another referendum are all now possible.

Theresa May tells MPs to hold their nerve over Brexit



Theresa May has told MPs to hold their nerve as she said she needed more time to persuade Europe to accept changes to her Brexit deal, with Labour accusing her of offering “more excuses and more delays” as the clock ticked relentlessly down towards Brexit day.

And another crunch day in the Commons is approaching, after Labour MP Yvette Cooper said she’d be tabling a vote on her bill ruling out a no-deal Brexit at the end of this month.

Theresa May promises meaningful vote after more talks with EU – BBC News



Theresa May has promised MPs a final, decisive vote on her Brexit deal – but not until she has secured changes to the Irish backstop clause.
Speaking in the Commons, the PM said she had a “mandate” to seek changes to the backstop as MPs had voted for it.
“We now need some time to complete that process”, she added.
If no agreement is reached by 26 February, then MPs will get more non-binding votes on Brexit options the following day.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused her of “running down the clock” in an effort to “blackmail” MPs into backing her deal, and asked when MPs would get a final, “meaningful” vote on her deal.
