The Government is today facing a parliamentary defeat on a motion which could prevent a No Deal Brexit.

Some members of the European Research Group (ERG) of MPs, who are pushing for a harder Brexit, say they will not support the Government.

Those not supporting the Government say ruling out a no-deal Brexit will weaken the UK’s negotiating position in Brussels.
