On a point of order, Mr Speaker, a fortnight ago, this House clearly rejected the proposed withdrawal agreement and political declaration with just 202 members voting in favour. Tonight, a majority of honourable members have said they would support a deal with changes to the backstop, combined with measures to address concerns over parliament's role in the negotiation of the future relationship and commitments on workers' rights in law where need be.
It is now clear that there is a route that can secure a substantial and sustainable - substantial and sustainable majority in this House for leaving the EU with a deal. We will now take this mandate forward and seek to obtain legally binding changes to withdrawal agreement that deals with concerns on the backstop while guaranteeing no return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
In light of the defeat of the right honourable member, the leader of the opposition's amendment, I again invite him to take up my offer of the meeting to see if we can find a way forward. Mr Speaker, if this House can come together, we can deliver the decision the British people took in June 2016, restore faith in our democracy, and get on with building a country that works for everyone. And as prime minister. I will work with members across the House to do just that.
