The scale of the defeat – 432 votes to 230 – sparked speculation that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would table a motion of no confidence in Mrs May’s Government. Speaking immediately afterwards, Mrs May said: “The House has spoken. It’s clear that the House does not support this deal.

“But tonight’s vote tells us nothing about what it does support.”

Earlier Mrs May’s spokesman Mrs May was determined to deliver the will of public and take Britain out of the EU.

He said: “The prime minister said the government is the servant of the people and she believes passionately that we must deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum. She added that after the vote has taken place, she would respond quickly to the result.”

He also denied she had any plans to fly to Brussels for talks with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

Prior to the vote, Tory MP Bill Cash had urged Mrs May to “consider her position” if she lost the vote.

The heaviest Commons defeat in history was by a majority of 166, against the minority Labour government headed up by Ramsay MacDonald in 1924.

Earlier today German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas suggested the EU could be open to negotiation on the subject, raising hopes of a possible breakthrough – but these were quickly dashed by Mr Bercow’s decision.
