Theresa May made a statement after the defeat in the Commons.
She says she “profoundly regrets” MPs decision.
She tells MPs that she has personally wrestled with the issue but says she is conscious of the “potential damage” leaving the EU without a deal would do.
She says she will urge the Commons to vote against a no-deal Brexit.
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.
