None of MPs’ eight proposed options for Brexit have secured clear backing following a vote in the House of Commons.

Calls for a customs union with the EU were rejected by 272 to 264 votes while a call for a referendum to endorse any deal was rejected by 295 to 268 votes.

Brexit Secretary Steven Barclay said the results strengthened ministers’ view their deal was “the best option”.

He said a “wide variety of options” had been considered and it was clear there was no “simple way forward”.

The options were: No Deal, Customs union, Common Market 2.0, EEA/Efta without customs union, Contingent preferential arrangements, Confirmatory public vote, Revocation to avoid no deal , Labour’s alternative plan
