Tuesday's Commons debate marked the start of the government's attempts to undo most of the changes to its EU Withdrawal Bill that were put forward by the House of Lords.
Around a dozen Tory Remainers said that May had promised them that the government would accept two parts of the amendment by Grieve, a former attorney general: a vote on the final deal and a statement from ministers to seek approval from parliament for the next steps if no deal is reached by November 30 of this year. The prime minister still has time to come up with a form of words acceptable to both sides, but the expectations of the anti-Brexit rebels have been raised significantly.
Lawmakers supported the government's position to reject amendments to the EU withdrawal bill that challenged May's commitment to leave the bloc's customs union and single market, leaving the overall shape of her Brexit strategy intact that will transform Britain's trading relationships for decades.
Attempts to keep the United Kingdom in the European Economic Area after Brexit have been defeated in the House of Commons, amid a major Labour revolt over the issue.
In response to the votes, Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable accused Labour of conspiring with the Conservatives to "wave through a hard Brexit".
Here are the key amendments which MPs voted on Wednesday evening.
Parliament on the same day threw out another proposal that would have required the government to report on its process of negotiating membership in the EU Customs Union with a vote of 325 to 298.
Supporters of this policy argue it would protect British jobs and go some way to preserving the invisible Irish border, while detractors point out it would prevent Britain from signing its own trade deals after it has left the EU.

The government concession is all the more remarkable because of the strength of opposition to the original amendment from ministers.
It has been the big hitters on Labour's backbenches - the shadow shadow cabinet of such as Hilary Benn, Yvette Cooper, Pat McFadden and others - who have led the fight against the Tories.
Leading rebel Dominic Grieve said he hoped a compromise would be found, but if not, "this isn't the end of the matter".
Parliament must decide whether to support an amendment approved by the House of Lords that could mean sending May back into negotiations with the European Union if lawmakers reject a Brexit deal. Illustrating the divisions in the party, Smith resigned in order to vote against the EEA.
Asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme what would happen under Government plans if MPs voted against the deal eventually secured by Mrs May, Mr Davis said: "If they throw it out, well, they throw it out". However, the party is divided on the issue, with a total of 89 Labour MPs choosing to defy Corbyn.
However, Labour MPs from Leave-voting seats - like Caroline Flint and Gareth Snell - have warned Corbyn that an EEA-style Brexit would not respect the wishes of Leave voters.
But he insisted Labour could not support the so-called Norway model as he did not believe it was the "right option" for the UK.
