Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including reaction to the Commons voting to try to take control of the Brexit process
- MPs likely to back soft Brexit or second vote, says minister who quit
- Rees-Mogg says it is ‘very, very difficult’ to see no deal happening
- Government may ignore result of indicative votes process, says Hancock
Michael Fabricant, the Tory Brexiter who voted against Theresa May’s deal in the first two meaningful votes, says he agrees with Jacob Rees-Mogg about MPs having to decide between May’s deal and no Brexit. (See 10.12am.)

Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons, is due to make a business statement at 12.30pm. Presumably this will cover the topic of indicative votes.
