After failing for the third time, UK Prime Minister Theresa May will look for another try to get Parliament’s approval for the fourth time, says insider.
Theresa May and her cabinet are looking for ways to bring her EU withdrawal agreement back to the Commons for a fourth attempt at winning MPs’ backing.
The PM said the UK would need “an alternative way forward” following a loss by 58 votes on Friday.
MPs from all parties will test support for other options during a second round of “indicative votes” on Monday, says report.
However, Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis said the government did not support any of those options.
However, Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to say whether his party would offer an option to remain in the EU during these votes, but said the obvious choice was “a good economic relationship with Europe”.
The latest vote came on the day the UK was supposed to leave the European Union: 29 March. The date was postponed to allow PM May more time to find a Brexit solution.
The government has so far failed to win over 34 Conservative rebels, including both Remainers as well as Tory Brexiteers, who say the deal still leaves the UK too closely aligned to Europe.
Meanwhile, a source indicated the prime minister would continue to seek support in the Commons and insisted efforts were “going in the right direction”.
