From The Independent:

In dramatic scenes in the House of Commons, an amendment delaying a meaningful vote on the prime minister’s EU withdrawal deal was passed by a margin of 322 votes to 306.

The vote means Mr Johnson cannot secure parliamentary approval his deal by the end of 19 October and is required by the terms of the so-called Benn Act to write to Brussels to ask for an extension to the end of January 2020.

According to Johnson, he believes the UK should leave the EU by the October 31st deadline, despite Members of Parliament wanting him to extend Brexit negotiations until January 2020. He said he would not negotiate an extension. 

"I continue in the very strong belief that the best thing for the UK and the whole of Europe is for us to leave with this new deal on 31 October," he said. "And, to anticipate the questions that are coming from the benches opposite, I will not negotiate a delay with the EU and neither does the law compel me to do so."

Thousands of people marched outside Parliament, demanding a say in the Brexit deal.
