Voted (aye) to amend the main motion to say: “(2) notes that this
House has decisively rejected the Withdrawal Agreement and Framework for
the Future Relationship laid before the House and the proposition that
the UK should leave the European Union without a Withdrawal Agreement
and a Framework for the Future Relationship; and
(3) therefore instructs the Prime Minister to seek an extension to
Article 50 in order to avoid exiting the EU on 29 March without a
ratified Withdrawal Agreement and a Framework for the Future
Relationship; and to provide parliamentary time for this House to find a
majority for a different approach.” (division #363; result was 302

Voted (aye) for the main motion, which “(1) notes the resolutions of
the House of 12 and 13 March, and accordingly agrees that the Government
will seek to agree with the European Union an extension of the period
specified in Article 50(3);
(2) agrees that, if the House has passed a resolution approving the
negotiated withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future
relationship for the purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union
(Withdrawal) Act 2018 by 20 March 2019, then the Government will seek to
agree with the European Union a one-off extension of the period
specified in Article 50(3) for a period ending on 30 June 2019 for the
purpose of passing the necessary EU exit legislation; and
(3) notes that, if the House has not passed a resolution approving the
negotiated withdrawal agreement and the framework for the future
relationship for the purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union
(Withdrawal) Act 2018 by 20 March 2019, then it is highly likely that
the European Council at its meeting the following day would require a
clear purpose for any extension, not least to determine its length, and
that any extension beyond 30 June 2019 would require the United Kingdom
to hold European Parliament elections in May 2019.” (division #364;
result was 412 aye, 201 no)
