Europhile peers had attempted to add an amendment to the Government's Article 50 Bill this afternoon calling for a public vote on the terms of the Prime Minister's final Brexit agreement.
But peers overwhelmingly rejected the demand with 336 voting against the amendment and only 131 supporting it.
The amendment to the proposed Article 50 legislation had been brought by Lord Newby, Liberal Democrat leader in the House of Lords, along with Labour peer Lord Hain and Conservative peer Baroness Wheatcroft.
Liberal Democrat peers, having failed to secure the amendment on the demand for another referendum, will now vote against the Article 50 Bill at its third reading in the House of Lords later tonight.
