Brexit: No 10 refuses to back business minister's claim no deal would be 'absolute disaster' - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Theresa May’s statement to MPs about what she plans next following the Commons defeat of her Brexit plan

No second vote on Brexit deal likely before February, says No 10

Vote next week will not be ‘meaningful’ as Theresa May continues to seek solution

Parliament is unlikely to have a second binding vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal until February, Downing Street has said, playing down the significance of the motion that will be voted on next week.

May’s spokesman said the vote due to be held on 29 January was not “a second meaningful vote” and the government’s motion would not spell out in detail the next stage of the prime minister’s plan to get a Brexit agreement through parliament.
