"If you are so confident in your deal, call that election, and let the people decide".
"Labour will table a motion of no confidence in the government at the moment we judge it to have the best chance of success", Corbyn said.
The Conservative MP Mark Francois, a vice-chair of the pro-Brexit European Research Group, said: "I have never known any occasion where the Speaker has overruled a motion of the House of Commons ... why are you overriding a motion of the house?"

He added: "Until I hear categorically that after Labour wins a general election that we will have a general election immediately because that is what needs to happen".

They're frustrated that Mr Corbyn, a longtime eurosceptic who voted for Remain in the 2016 referendum, has refused to push for a new vote, even as polling shows the majority of Labour voters support one.
Wednesday's decision came as MPs began five days of debate on May's deal and is the latest example of legislators seeking to tie the government's hands over Brexit, with less than three months to go before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on March 29.
"If a general election can not be secured, then we will keep all options on the table, including the option of campaigning for a public vote", Corbyn said in a speech in northern England. Under party policy agreed a year ago, if Mrs May refuses to call an election, Labour may then pivot to pushing for a second referendum.
"I don't think the British public are served by fantasies about magical, alternative deals that are somehow going to spring out of a cupboard in Brussels", Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington told BBC radio.
Bercow provoked fury from the Tory benches for selecting the amendment, which government sources contended went against the advice of the House of Commons.
Bercow said he had made an "honest judgement" after consulting his clerks and said that if people wanted to vote against the amendment they could. "That is how we can help to heal the referendum's deep divisions".
The government has lost two Brexit votes in two days. Responding to the vote, Brexit minister Stephen Barclay told parliament it was the government's intention to act quickly if May's Brexit plan was rejected on Tuesday.
"The Labour MPs claimed that 40 to 80 of their colleagues could eventually follow suit, after several rounds of voting", says Elliot.
