My right hon. Friend is obviously right about the votes that took place in this House. However, the amendment tabled by my hon. Friend Sir Graham Brady, which was voted for on a cross-party basis, also referenced the fact that this House wanted to leave the European Union with a deal, and that is what we are working for. I repeat to my right hon. Friend that we cannot just say that we do not want to have no deal; we can only ensure that there is not a no-deal situation by agreeing a deal.
