The British pound dipped against major currencies as a much-anticipated amendment to postpone Brexit was rejected by the British parliament on Tuesday night.

The British House of Commons on Tuesday voted 321-298, with a majority of 23, against an amendment from Labor's Yvette Cooper for Brexit to be delayed by nine months if no deal is agreed by Feb. 26.

The latest development came as British MPs voted on a series of amendments to modify the prime minister's Brexit plan after it was voted down by a historic margin on Jan. 15.
