Further indicative votes were held on 1 April on the proposals selected by the spokesperson.  One Labour MP abstained (Paul Flynn, absent due to prolonged illness), all seven Sinn-Féin MPs with abstention policies, and eight others: spokesman John Bercow, Deputy Spokesperson Eleanor Laing (Conservative), Lindsay Hoyle (Labour) and Rosie Winterton (work); Moreover, the voices of the narrators are not taken into account (for the Ayes, Wendy Morton and Iain Stewart, both Conservatives, and for the Noes, Vicky Foxcroft and Nick Smith, both Labor).  The success of the Grieves amendment (by 321 votes to 299) means that MEPs can now amend this proposal, giving them a much wider say on the UK`s withdrawal from the EU.  The tie was broken by the spokesperson in favour of the “no” (according to Speaker Denison`s rule), meaning that the application was denied. The failure to pass this motion meant that the House of Commons would not hold further indicative votes on April 8, 2019.  On 27 February 2019, the House of Commons passed a amendable motion: “Let this House take note of the Prime Minister`s statement on the withdrawal from the European Union on 26 February 2019; also notes that discussions between the UK and the EU are ongoing. 32 Labour MPs and 10 Conservatives did not vote. Here`s how MPs voted in favour of the Prime Minister`s withdrawal deal: the House of Commons voted 329 – 299 in favour of the withdrawal agreement in a major victory for the Prime Minister after months of negotiations with Brussels and its bankers. The withdrawal agreement also contains provisions for the United Kingdom to leave the Convention setting the status of European schools, with the United Kingdom bound by the Convention and accompanying regulations on accredited European schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. at the end of the spring semester 2020-2021.  When the bill returned to the House of Commons on June 20, the government offered new concessions. The concessions meant that the government won by 319 votes to 303: a majority of 16   at the end of March 2019, the government had not won any of the major votes.
This resulted in a series of non-binding “indicative votes” on possible options for Brexit and the delay in the withdrawal date. And so to a vote on the proposed program. That`s the last time Boris Johnson did something wrong. Spoiler: It won`t happen again. Two amendments were adopted. The Brady Amendment called on the government to renegotiate Northern Ireland`s backstop. It won 16 votes, backed by the Conservatives and the DUP against other parties in the House of Commons, but 7 Labour MPs backed it and eight Conservative MPs voted against. The Spelman-Dromey amendment expressed the desire of the House of Commons to avoid a Brexit without a deal. It received 8 votes, supported by all other parties except the Conservatives and the DUP, but with the support of 17 Conservative MPs. An amendment to pave the way for a binding law that would not prevent any agreement, the Cooper Boles amendment, failed by 23 votes.
Three other amendments also failed.   The main motion (as amended) was then adopted without division. Immediately afterwards, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn called for a vote of no confidence in the government, which took place on 16 January 2019. The government won by 325 votes to 306, a majority of 19.  Six Labour members voted for the bill – Sarah Champion, Rosie Cooper, Jon Cruddas, Emma Lewell-Buck, Grahame Morris, Toby Perkins. Here is Lewell-Buck`s speech, in which she says she decided with a heavy heart that she could not vote with the Labour Party.
