Britain's Parliament will hold a no-confidence vote in the government after its Brexit divorce deal was crushingly rejected by lawmakers.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the government needed to know if it still had the support of the House of Commons. May said lawmakers would consider the no-confidence motion on Wednesday.

Her statement, after the Brexit deal was defeated in a resounding 432 -202 vote, pre-empted a call for a confidence vote by opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Corbyn urged lawmakers to defeat the government and trigger a national election.
