CUMBRIA’S Conservative MPs supported Theresa May as her Brexit deal was crushed in Parliament.

John Stevenson, Rory Stewart and Trudy Harrison were among 202 MPs who sided with the Prime Minster over her EU Withdrawal Agreement last night.

But Labour’s Workington MP Sue Hayman was among the 432 who voted it down in the biggest House of Commons loss for a Government in modern times.

They will each be back in Parliament today as MPs consider a motion of no confidence in the Government, tabled by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as talks intensify over what’s next for Brexit.

Mr Stevenson, however, conceded that Mrs May’s vision was now over.

He said: “I think the current agreement is finished.

“It is going to need cross-party support, that is the only solution.”

Mr Corbyn described the Government’s defeat as “catastrophic”.

He said: “After two years of failed negotiations the House of Commons has delivered its verdict on her Brexit deal and that verdict is absolutely decisive.

“I hear the words of the Prime Minister but the actions of the past two years speak equally clearly.”

He added: “The most important issue facing us is that the Government has lost the confidence of this house and this country.

“I therefore inform you I have now tabled a motion of no confidence in this Government.

The Prime Minister said:”I’ve always believed that the best way forward is to leave in an orderly way with a good deal and have devoted much of the last two years negotiating such a deal.”

She added: “Every day that passes without this issue being resolved means more uncertainty, more bitterness and more rancour.

“The Government has heard what the house has said tonight, but I ask members on all sides of the house to listen to the British people who want this issue settled and to work with the Government to do just that.”

Mrs May continued: “First we need to confirm whether this Government still enjoys the confidence of this house.

“I believe that it does but given the scale and importance of tonight’s vote it is right that others have the chance to test that question if they wish to do so.”

Mrs May said if she wins the vote the next step would be to hold cross-party meetings with the DUP and “senior Parliamentarians from across the House” to identify “what would be required to secure the backing of the house”.

Speaking after the vote, Mr Stevenson told the News & Star: “I voted with the Government in the belief that it would take us out of the European Union, as the referendum wanted us to do.

“It has been a huge defeat for the Prime Minister and she has to look at alternative solutions as to our future relationship with the European Union.”

Mr Stevenson added: “It is a real option to have an EFTA (European Free Trade Association) solution similar to that of Norway, which takes us out of the European Union but keeps us closely tied in our economic relationship with the European Union.”

Speaking to the BBC shortly after the vote, Mr Stewart, the Government’s justice minister and a high-profile supporter of Mrs May’s Withdrawal Agreement, said: “Nobody can actually believe she has an alternative 500-page document with the European Union. There is only one deal with the EU.”
