The UK parliament has missed its "last chance" to reach a Brexit agreement, the European Union's Economic Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said on Wednesday, ONAreports citing France 2 broadcaster.

"We have done everything we could do. After what happened yesterday, the risk of no deal increases strongly. That is not what we want, but we are preparing for it," EU Commissioner said.

He also stressed that Britain now has to say what it wants as the recent failed vote reflects "what they don't want". 

The remarks come after a failed vote last night in the House of Commons as 391 MPs voted against and 242 approved her plan. Therefore, a fresh vote on a no-deal scenario is expected tonight; if it fails, then a vote on extending the Brexit deadline past March 29 will follow.
