Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons by 325 votes to 306 on January 16th following the rejection of her Brexit deal the day before. It was the first no-confidence vote in a UK Government for 26 years.

Labour, Plaid Cymru, SNP, Lib Dem, Green and 4 Independent MPs voted in favour of the motion, but they were outnumbered by Conservatives, the DUP and an Independent MP.

The Prime Minister said she would hold discussions with senior members of the opposition to consider a way forward and immediately met with representatives of the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Lib Dems following the vote.
