The amendment, which called on the government to seek "at the earliest opportunity a joint UK-EU commitment" to secure the rights of EU citizens in the UK and British nationals settled in the EU, was passed by MPs without a formal vote.

"To be more precise: what the European Council will be asked to do is to change their negotiating mandate - that set out in the European Council Guidelines of 29 April 2017, setting out the mandate for the Commission which said that "nothing is agreed until everything is agreed".

But less than an hour after Javid made his comments, Costa was sacked from his post as parliamentary private secretary to the Scottish secretary, David Mundell.

The European Union will not match the United Kingdom government's decision to guarantee the rights of EU nationals in the event of a "no deal" Brexit, and a Commission spokesperson insisted on Thursday (28 February) that the bloc would not negotiate "mini deals".

Mr Costa, whose parents are Italian immigrants to the United Kingdom, gained cross-party backing for his proposed amendment and when he read it last night and following cheers of support no one opposed it so it went through "on the nod" (without a vote).

The amendment gained support from 141 MPs from different parties, and was accepted by the government.

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Costa said he had "been a loyal Conservative member".

In the speech Mrs May said that she would put the withdrawal agreement deal to the MPs again by March 12 and that if the government does not win the vote it will table a motion to be voted on by March 13 at the latest, asking MPs if they approve leaving without a deal.

"We would have reluctantly had to support the Yvette Cooper, Letwin amendment today if that was the only way we could stop a no-deal Brexit", he told Nick Ferrari.

The European Commission has rebuffed a call by MPs for an agreement with the United Kingdom to ensure that the rights of expats are protected across Europe in the case of a no-deal Brexit.

Some countries have started to legislate to secure the rights of United Kingdom citizens living in their territory, but some have not.

European Union nationals with a right to permanent residence, which is granted after they have lived in the United Kingdom for five years, should not see their rights affected after Brexit.

The priority for most will be to register as residents, but the rules - including deadlines for paperwork - vary from country to country.

She has also committed to giving MPs a vote on delaying Brexit, if they reject both her deal and no-deal.

If they reject no-deal she said she would then give them a vote on March 14 on whether Parliament wants a short extension to article 50 - if they vote for that she will attempt to obtain it from the European Union, she said.
