Though the resolution is not binding, it does say a lot about whether a new referendum is likely to happen, with time quickly running out before the EU exit deadline.

The cross-party proposal was the first time the House of Commons has held a formal vote on whether to endorse another referendum.

The vote amendment on the referedum would not have been legally binding, which means that Parliament could take up the issue again in the future. It does, however, show that there is little-to-no support for such a move.
