WARRINGTON'S two MPs back a historic vote in the House of Commons on Monday night to allow Parliament control over the Brexit process.

Helen Jones, Warrington North MP, and Faisal Rashid, Warrington South MP, were among the 329 MPs to vote in favour of Tory former minister Sir Oliver Letwin's amendment.

It allows Parliament to organise a series of indicative votes on Wednesday over which form Brexit could take after Prime Minister Theresa May said the numbers were still not there to support her deal which has been defeated twice.

The result means MPs can potentially dictate business of the Commons - normally controlled by the Government - for days to come, potentially paving the way for a "softer" deal that keeps Britain closer to the EU.

Ministers will consider their response at the weekly meeting of the Cabinet in Downing Street on Tuesday.

The Government warned the Monday night vote had set a "dangerous, unpredictable precedent" and said it was essential that any options put forward by MPs were actually "deliverable".

"This amendment instead upends the balance between our democratic institutions and sets a dangerous, unpredictable precedent for the future," a spokesman for the Department for Exiting the EU said.

"While it is now up to Parliament to set out next steps in respect of this amendment, the Government will continue to call for realism - any options considered must be deliverable in negotiations with the EU."

Earlier in a statement to MPs, the Prime Minister warned she would not feel bound by the results of any indicative votes - which could include a softer, Norway-style deal, a second referendum or revoking the Article 50 withdrawal process altogether.

"No Government could give a blank cheque to commit to an outcome without knowing what it is," she said.
