Brexit: Theresa May gives Downing Street statement – BBC News This evening the government has won the confidence of parliament. This now gives us all the opportunity to focus on finding a way forward. On brexit, I understands that people getting on with their lives away from Westminster the events of the past 24 hours. Will it be unsettling overwhelmingly delivering brexit important issues they care about us to leave the European Union, and I intend to do so so now I’m pieces made clear what they don’t want. We must all work constructively together to set out what Parliament that’s, why I’m inviting MPC pool parties to come together to find a way forward, one of those delivers on the referendum and fentimans the support of parliament. This is now the time to put self in beside. I have just held constructive meetings with the leader of the liberal Democrats. As the Westminster leaders of the SNP from tomorrow. Meetings will be taking place between senior representative, including myself and groups of MPS who represent the widest possible range of used from across Parliament, including our confidence and Supply Partners. The Democratic unionist Party, the leader of the Labour party, has not so far chosen to take part, but I’ll dual remains open. It will not be an easy task, but MP’s know they have a duty to act in the National compressed, reach a consensus and get this done in a historic vote.

The prime minster has called on MPs to “put self-interest aside” and “work constructively together” to find a way forward for Brexit.
Theresa May said she had met with the Liberal Democrats, the SNP and Plaid Cymru, but was “disappointed” Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had not chosen to take part in discussions.
Earlier, the prime minister won a vote of no confidence by 325 to 306, as rebel Tory MPs and the DUP backed her to stay in No 10.
But just 24 hours before, both groups ensured her Brexit plan was voted down in Parliament by an historic margin.
