Parliament has already voted against leaving the European Union without an agreement on divorce terms, but there is no easy way for lawmakers to stop a government that is determined to carrying out Brexit without a deal.
The efforts to avoid a no-deal Brexit come from comments made by Conservative Party candidates hoping to succeed Theresa May as prime minister that they will not delay Brexit beyond the now scheduled date of October 31.
MPs clashed over the handing the government the right to dismiss parliament and control the Brexit agenda and the right for parliament to prevent no-deal by any means necessary. "I would put Oliver Letwin right in the middle of that graveyard". Mr Corbyn could be heard shouting across the chamber: "You won't be cheering in September!"
It was submitted after Tory leadership candidates, including frontrunner and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, made suggestions that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on October 31 with or without a deal.
Many economists have argued a no-deal Brexit would cause economic turmoil and plunge Britain into recession. Raab even suggested that he would suspend parliament to block MPs from thwarting a no-deal exit.
But it wasn't enough to make up for the eight Labour MPs who opposed the motion and the few who actively abstained (most of those with "no vote recorded" were authorised absences).
He said Labour would continue to work to find parliamentary mechanisms to ensure whoever succeeds Theresa May could not simply leave with no-deal in the autumn.
Boris Johnson has launched his bid for the Tory crown with a warning to MPs they will "reap the whirlwind" if they try to thwart Brexit.
Brexit secretary Steve Barclay said the vote was merely an attempt to avoid "internal tension" within the Labour Party.
Conservative frontrunner Boris Johnson warned that MPs face "mortal retribution" if they fail to deliver Brexit.
Fear within the ranks of the Conservative Party has only been exasperated following the Peterborough by election last week, where a split vote between Nigel Farage's Brexit Party and the Conservatives saw a Labour victory in the leave stronghold.
