    MPs have been told they face their "last opportunity" to ensure the Brexit process is extended to 22 May and bring certainty to people and businesses.

    The attorney general said any further extension past 12 April would be "subject to the veto" of 27 EU leaders.

    MPs will be asked to approve only part of the PM's Brexit deal, the withdrawal agreement, covering the terms of exit.

    Labour said separating that from the political declaration would mean voting on a "blindfold Brexit".

    Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer told the BBC's Today programme: "Take the political declaration off and it is completely blind - you have no idea what you are really voting for."

    MPs have rejected Theresa May’s EU withdrawal agreement on the day the UK was due to leave the EU.

    The government lost by 344 votes to 286, a margin of 58.

    It means the UK has missed an EU deadline to delay Brexit to 22 May and leave with a deal.

    The prime minister said the UK would have to find "an alternative way forward", which was "almost certain" to involve holding European elections.

    Mrs May now has until 12 April to seek a longer extension to the negotiation process to avoid a no-deal Brexit on that date.
