Order! The ayes to the right, 202. The nos to the left, 432. So the nos have it, the nos have it.>> Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the House has spoken and the government will listen. It is clear that the House does not support this deal, but tonight's vote tells us nothing about what it does support.
And have devoted much of the last two years negotiating such a deal.
The government will make time to debate that motion tomorrow. And if, as happened before Christmas, the official opposition decline to do so, we will, on this occasion, consider making time tomorrow. To debate any motion in the form required from the other opposition parties should they put one forward.
Second, if the House confirms its confidence in this government, I will then hold meetings with my colleagues, our confidence and supply part of the DUP. And senior Parliamentarians from across the House to identify what would be required to secure the backing of the House. The government will approach these meetings in a constructive spirit.
