EU Commission: Real Brexit talks will only start after June vote
The six MPs, who all represent the Conservative Party, were among 552 members of parliament who voted to approve plans for the snap election. "Give me the mandate to speak for Britain". "The British people voted a year ago to leave the European Union".
The former interior minister, who became prime minister without an election when her predecessor David Cameron quit after last year's referendum vote for Brexit, said she needed to strengthen her hand in negotiations which will reshape Britain and test the cohesion of the EU.
Theresa May will reportedly include her Brexit negotiating priorities in the Conservative General Election manifesto to lock Remain-backing Tory MPs and the House of Lords into backing her stance.
May stunned the country on Tuesday when she announced her plan for an early vote, despite having repeatedly said she would wait until the next election scheduled in 2020.
He said: "The Prime Minister and her cabinet have decided they want to have an election and within the constraints of the fixed parliament act, which I hope we will eventually get rid of, there has to be a vote in parliament".
She has also played up the strength of the economy, which has so far defied predictions of a slowdown - a key campaign theme that her Conservative Party will use to try to undermine Labour in the election.
Earlier, Mr Corbyn dismissed Mrs May's argument that she needs a fresh mandate to deliver Brexit, and said it was "extremely interesting" that she had chosen to call an election as the Crown Prosecution Service prepares to decide whether to press charges against a string of Tory MPs over allegations relating to 2015 general election expenses.
If the election is approved Wednesday, Parliament will be dissolved on May 2, sparking nearly six weeks of campaigning.
And he told MPs: "We welcome the opportunity of a general election because it gives the British people the chance to vote for a Labour government that will put the interests of the majority first".

Britain will also not have a say in the future location of London-based European Union agencies, he added, contradicting one United Kingdom official who said this week that the issue would be part of the Brexit negotiations.

"They think there are rules in politics, which if you don't follow by doffing your cap to powerful people, accepting that things can't really change, then you can't win", he will say.
A European Commission spokesman said the "real political" negotiations on Brexit will start after the election. "It's about. getting the right deal from Europe".
The premier has already backed out from televised debates, drawing fire from Corbyn.
"We won't be doing television debates", May said, adding that politicians should spend election campaigns "out and about" meeting voters.
Montgomeryshire MP, Glyn Davies, said the Prime Minister had been left with "little choice" due to frustration over Brexit.
Liberal Democrat leader Farron said that broadcasters should hold debates anyway, with an empty chair in May's place.
May, Britain's second female prime minister, also has strong popular support for her handling of the political natural disaster unleashed by Brexit.
