To sum up, the problems stemming from Brexit won't be instantly solved regardless of how Parliament votes Wednesday and Thursday.
But tariffs will be slashed on imports from outside the EU, potentially lowering prices on goods from countries like the US and China, in a move which unions warned would "destroy" jobs in manufacturing sectors like steel.
Thoughts will now turn to an extension beyond the European Union summit next week, followed by a third meaningful vote on May's Brexit plan.
Amendment (d) states that "under no circumstances" should the United Kingdom leave without a deal, listing the alternatives as revocation of the UK's intention to leave, extension of the Article 50 period or a second referendum.
This killed any hope May had of persuading pro-Brexit Tories to abandon their opposition to the deal and vote for it. May's political spokesman said she had not discussed resigning.
Lawmakers were to cast votes Tuesday night, for the second time, for or against the proposed Brexit deal that May has spent more than two years negotiating with the EU.
Proposed tariff rates on a range of food products were announced as a proportion of the so-called "most favoured nation" (MFN) now imposed by the European Union on imports from countries which do not have a free trade agreement.
"Let's be crystal clear about the choice: it is this deal or Brexit might not happen at all", he said.

The border has been open and unguarded for 20 years since the Good Friday agreement ended the armed conflict in Northern Ireland, but that status will be much more hard to maintain once Britain is no longer part of the EU. And no indication that Britain is any closer to knowing what it wants from Brexit. We have the withdrawal agreement, it is there.
The European Research Group said the verdict of its "Star Chamber" set up to analyse the assurances was that they did not deliver legally binding changes to the Brexit deal or the Irish backstop and did not provide an exit mechanism over which Britain had control. Politicians of every hue must overcome their differences and make avoiding a no-deal Brexit the absolute priority, starting with the vote in Parliament tomorrow.
Hours before a vote on the deal in parliament, May had failed to win over the main Brexit faction in her own party, while Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which props up her minority government, said it would vote against her.
The statement said: "To protect human, animal and plant health, animals and animal products from countries outside the EU would need to enter Northern Ireland through a designated entry point, regulated plant material from outside the EU and high risk EU plant material will require certification and pre-notification before arriving in the UK".
But "the EU-27 will expect a credible justification for a possible extension and its duration".
Some British lawmakers warned their Brexit-backing colleagues that rejecting the deal could lead to Britain's departure being postponed indefinitely, because a delay would give momentum to opponents of Brexit. "If we don't check out tonight, we may never leave", tweeted Conservative legislator Bob Seely.
It has also increased the chances that May's fragile government could fall, sparking a snap election. "It's time that we have a general election and the people can choose who their government should be", he said.
