Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Liberal Democrats are renewing their calls for a People's Vote following the rejection of the Prime Minster Theresa May's Brexit deal.

The leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats says Brexit has become a "national embarrassment" while Plaid Cymru MP, Liz Saville Roberts MP says it is time to find a "real solution".

This heavy and humiliating defeat for the Prime Minister is just the latest example of a very sorry saga. Theresa May’s deal is dead, she cannot attempt to have another vote on her deal.

Only decisive action will end this chaos, only a People’s Vote will solve this crisis. There is no Brexit deal that could be better than our current relationship or that could pass Parliament.

If Theresa May won’t support a People’s Vote, Jeremy Corbyn must immediately lend his full-throated support to a People’s Vote and throw the full weight of Labour behind the campaign.

The only solution to this Brexit impasse is to give the people the final say and the opportunity to choose an Exit from Brexit.

This is a clear and decisive rejection of the Prime Minister’s Deal. Plaid Cymru will never vote to make our country or constituents poorer and tonight we rejected a deal that would do both.

Parliament cannot come to an agreement on the way forward, so it’s now for the people to decide on our European future.

The Labour Party must now table its motion of no confidence and if it fails, back a People’s Vote as its membership demanded.

The Brexit pendulum is swinging in our favour and all paths lead towards giving the people a final say.

Parliament has failed, now let the people decide.
