The Scottish National Party (SNP) had 32 votes FOR Common Market 2, but abstained in the Customs Union vote. If the Customs Union was the only soft Brexit option available, SNP might vote for it. This would give Customs Union enough votes (if the other votes held). But there were 39 Conservatives who abstained from the Customs Union vote who could swing the vote either way.

April 1st Customs Union Brexit vote:
