Brexit vote result: MPs cheer when Theresa May asks if they want a fresh referendum
Several MPs shout 'yes' as PM asks about second vote
“This house will have to answer that question," Ms May told the Commons. "Does it wish to revoke Article 50? Does it want to hold a second referendum, or does it want to leave with a deal but not this deal?
"These are unenviable choices, but thanks to the decision the house has made this evening they must now be faced.”
As she mentioned a Final Say vote, several MPs shouted "yes”, followed immediately by others shouting “no”.
Shortly afterwards, another MP also shouted: “What about a general election?”
The prime minister's deal was voted down by a majority of 149.
Parliament will vote tomorrow on the option of leaving the European Union without a deal on 29 March, which Ms May said would be a “free vote” for her MPs.
