salumi has more from washington. boeing's most popular jet is now coming under scrutiny as a result of the ethiopian airlines crash it's the second deadly accident involving the seven thirty seven max eight in less than six months and similarities between these two accidents have prompted airline carriers more than a dozen of them in countries like china indonesia and mexico to ground their fleet while the investigation is going on now that's not the case here in the united states here the federal aviation administration says that the boeing plane is airworthy and that it's too soon to draw conclusions about what happened it's been working with boeing ever since the last crash the lion air crash that happened in indonesia last october it says boeing is expected to make a software update to the plane in the next month that should help with some issues
but again insisting that the airline is airworthy and safe now that's not enough for some people here in the united states airlines have been facing questions from passengers and travelers who are worried about flying on the seven thirty seven max we've heard from senator die. and feinstein in california has called for grounding the fleet temporarily until the cause of the accident is known flight attendants association and one pilots union have also called for further investigation boeing for its part issued a statement saying that their plane is safe and that the software update will only make it safer they have however suffered in the stock market their stocks dropping more than five percent on monday a memorial service is being held for the theo lines crew who were killed in sunday's crash the boeing seven three seven eight came down shortly after takeoff

votes the largest vote against the us government in history in that case the m.p.'s will come back on wednesday but this time to vote on britain crashing out of the european union without a deal in other words a hard brags that if the m.p.'s reject the possibility of a no deal then they may have to vote on whether to ask the prime minister to buy more time from the e.u. to delay brigs it brussels will have to agree to an extension or another possible scenario is holding a second national referendum on may's deal and the choice of remaining in the e.u. journal has the latest from london. which reason may well be hoping against hope perhaps that what she's achieved with e.u. leaders on monday night easy enough to change the minds of enough and peace to be able to reverse that historic defeat in january of her deal by a margin of two hundred thirty votes the problem may be the not enough n.p.c.
in front of them now anything significantly different to what they saw in january albeit couched in different legally sounding language there is a sort of three part deal on the table here the first part of it a joint interpretive instrument so-called it's basically a document attached to the withdrawal agreement though not contained within it that in forces reinforces commitment already made in january by both sides to work as hard as they can to get out of the backstop the northern ireland backstop if indeed they ever get into it there is now fresh wording as well in the political declaration alongside the withdrawal agreement itself not politically finding that both sides would work towards alternative technological arrangements to negate the need for a backstop by the end of twenty twenty and then there was this rather bizarre unilateral statement made by theresa may in the presence of john paul but with no direct input from the e.u. setting out the ways in which britain might seek to unilaterally exit the backstop
if they decide it is all becoming a bit too permanent when there's no sense whatsoever how legally binding that may be in the big question today this morning certainly will be the extent to which geoffrey cox the attorney general is persuaded to change his legal advice to government he was the one who said the backstop of course would be a trap potentially in which the u.k. would link it definitely close to be used truck shows but with no say in them upon his advice some m.p.'s may be encouraged to change theirs but the early signs on not good figures on the right of the tory party and indeed senior figures in the labor party both saying that all of this forms well short of the commitments the government gave essentially to neutralize the backstop well together. the u.s. plans to withdraw all its remaining diplomats from venezuela the state department says the presence of u.s. embassy staff is limiting its policy options the opposition dominated national assembly in venezuela described widespread power outages as a national emergency the power cuts of lead to water and fuel shortages and caused
