Frank Fields has proposed a Parliamentary vote on the latest government proposals, so ai thought I would check whether Parliament voting in favour of his proposal would satisfy the Act started by Benn et al.

No, as I read it. The act says a withdrawal agreement needs to have been concluded with the EU. In law, concluded does not just mean ended, it requires success. So walking away would not count.
