The opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has made a statement following the government’s  defeat  where  MPs voted to seize control of indicative votes process from the government by a majority of 27.

  • This house must now find a solution.
  • This house must consider whether any deal should be put to the people for a vote.
