Brexit legal advice will now be published in full

British ministers has been found in contempt of parliament by not releasing all of the legal advice it's been given over the Brexit withdrawal deal.

The British government had argued it was not in the public interest to publish the legal advice in full.

Labour, however, had insisted the 'full and final' advice had to be published ahead of a crucial Brexit vote by MPs next week.

An attempt to the delay the vote and move the issue to a committee was rejected by four votes this evening.

After the main contempt motion was passed by 311 votes to 293, Conservative leader in the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom confirmed the full advice will now be released.

Following this evening's vote, five days of debate will begin on Theresa May's withdrawal deal itself.
