* FTSE 250 down 0.4%, FTSE 100 largely unchanged
* Fresnillo at bottom of main index after weak outlook
* Exporters benefit from weaker pound
Oct 23 (Reuters) - UK-listed shares with greater domestic exposure slid on Wednesday as lawmakers rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s proposed Brexit timetable, though losses were contained as fears of a no-deal departure were firmly out of sight.
The FTSE 250 index of midcap firms weakened by 0.4% as at 0706 GMT, marking its second day in the red, while the blue-chip bourse was roughly flat as its exporter stocks were supported by a drop in sterling.
Fresnillo dropped nearly 4% after the precious metals miner forecast annual silver and gold production at the lower end of an already reduced target range, and reported a fall in quarterly output. (Reporting by Muvija M and Shashwat Awasthi in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
