the ranks that have so far rejected a deal into now backing it but all of this could mean that two reason may might bring the plan back to parliament for another go before the end of the week but it's a big gamble it's been defeated twice already a third defeat could be devastating for to resume a's leadership the u.k.'s already in extra time amaze under huge pressure from probe conservatives to set a quick timetable for her departure the withdrawal agreement was supposed to be the easy part of brics it talks of the future trading relationship haven't even begun the volga al-jazeera westminster and a barber has the latest now from outside parliament in minden center jane what do we expect to happen this week now in parliament. well as you're hearing in nice report there will now be on wednesday
10:11 am
a series of votes so-called indicative votes on different options ways forward for the bright said process and although nice was saying that they could in some eyes actually benefits resume a scare some wavering m.p.'s here into backing her deal i don't think many commentators are really betting on but it's really really lost a lot of sort of popularity in the last week and it was seen as a big defeat for her as she said it could create a dangerous precedent parliament being in control of the timetable for exploring these ways out but at the same time she pointed out in the commons on monday that there will be no deal in her words there will be there won't be a no deal breaks it without the approval of parliament well that's correct in theory they voted to reject it before but they must come up with a plan b. and if not as nice was saying on april the twelfth that's the deadline for the u.k. either to come back to to brussels with a definite proposal or to leave without
