Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.
Theresa May is expected to pledge in the Commons this week that MPs will get another say on Brexit if she can not recommend a revised plan this month.
Meanwhile, shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer told the Sunday Times that Labour plans to force another vote on her deal anyway.
He said the move was necessary to stop Mrs May "running down the clock".More news: Texas girl battling cancer becomes honorary officer
May will promise parliament another vote on other Brexit options if a deal is still not ready by the end of February.
"You would have a hard border, very hard border". The withdrawal deal, which the two sides have reached, has not yet been approved by United Kingdom lawmakers, with the Irish border backstop being the stumbling block.
May wants to win over lawmakers in her Conservative Party with changes relating to the Northern Irish border, but the EU has refused to reopen that part of the deal and instead wants May to pursue a compromise with the main opposition Labour Party by agreeing closer UK-EU ties.

He said that Mrs May intends to return to Parliament after the 21-22 March European summit - with just one week before Brexit - and offer MPs a choice between her deal and a no-deal Brexit.
Last week, the passing of the Brady amendment, which called for "alternative arrangements" to the Irish backstop, paved the way for Theresa May to have another trip to Brussels in an attempt to renegotiate her Brexit deal that suffered a historic defeat in Parliament.
With a vote due February 14 and no prospect of agreement, May will ask Parliament this week to reaffirm its desire to remove the contentious Irish backstop clause from current deal, according to an official, who declined to be identified.
"That gives that sense of timetable, clarity, and goal on what we're doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that parliament very firmly has", Brokenshire told the BBC. "And that's what we want to do this week".More news: China says tests of human immunoglobulin are HIV negative
