british prime minister trees a maze of bricks and david has suffered a second setback and as many days parliament has given her just three days to come up with new plans for the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. if her date is rejected by m.p.'s start a debate on the deal before voters next week lawrence lay reports from london. outside parliament's everyone's getting ready for what's supposed to be the end game. parliament will vote next week on whether to accept the deal thrashed out on the u.k. leaving the european union breck says a sub told the life out of the airwaves months and people are sick to death of it unfortunately though it doesn't look like the end is insights. inside the mother of parliaments the debate song where the u.k. should go are beginning again among the six hundred fifty m.p.'s at least five different groupings arguing for different outcomes and there is no sign it's all of any one shifting position so if her deal is defeated next week as i hope and expect
9:21 am
it will will the prime minister do the right thing and let the people have a real say and call a general election. you. know we put it good deal on the table that protects jobs and security but i notice i notice. that we still don't know what brett's plan the right honorable gentleman . it's supposed to be decision time the european union's bored to death with all this yet is total gridlock as things stand at the moment parliament has decided that it doesn't want to leave the european union with no deal but apparently it doesn't like the prime minister's deal either nor can it present any sort of alternative strategy for what to do instead what it means is that if you ask any politician here or any of the journalists camped out here no one has the first clue
9:22 am

commitment of both parties to make their agreements work. but special envoy martin griffiths seemed to be accentuating the positive in the public meeting when later it went into closed session the council heard from major general patrick kamut the dutch general who leads the u.n. monitoring mission in who data he's giving the security council weekly reports the latest says the un's body armor and armored vehicles have not been allowed into the country there are many no go areas and the team of received death threats according to the un's top humanitarian official the situation for ordinary human is remains dire millions of yemenis are looking to ask for assistance and protection and we need to see more and faster progress on all the humanitarian elements of your resolution to make any practical difference to their lives the u.n. special envoy said sweden is only the start of the next part achieving the last
9:25 am
thing political agreement will be even harder a former u.s. ambassador to yemen laid out the challenges ahead what he got out of stockholm was in some sense of though hanging fruit in some instances in fact there was. an issues that had already been agreed like the prisoner exchange so as so what's going to come next is going to be much more of a trial and there is talk here of fresh talks on yemen to be held in either kuwait or jordan but so far the u.n. has not felt confident enough to name a date james out of the united nations sources have told al jazeera that turkey's prosecutor is working on a list of some of these suspects accused of murdering jamal kushal indicating that a child in absentia as likely to take place in the country was killed just a few days ago saudi arabia announced its own trial for eleven suspects are yet to
