European stocks closed higher Wednesday after British lawmakers defeated Prime Minister Boris Johnson™s government in a vote to seize control of parliamentary business, moving closer to blocking a no-deal Brexit.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 was up 0.9% to 383.18 at the closing bell, basic resources jumping 2.9% to lead gains as all sectors and major bourses traded in positive territory.
In the House of Commons on Tuesday night, MPs voted to allow a bill to block a no-deal Brexit to be introduced, defeating the government by 27 votes as 21 lawmakers from Johnson™s own ruling Conservative party voted with the opposition. Johnson said following the vote that he would table a motion for a general election, but main opposition Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn said he will not back the early election unless the bill ruling out no-deal is passed first.
