The British government must offer a "clear" answer on its intentions for Brexit before a European Union summit next week, the French presidency said Friday, after United Kingdom lawmakers voted to seek a delay if no withdrawal deal is reached soon.

The Prime Minister is set to bring her Brexit deal back to the Commons for a third meaningful vote next week, and Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has sought to provide further legal assurances about the Irish backstop.

Most Conservative MPs voted against delaying Brexit, including 7 cabinet members Mrs.

Mrs May will also look to get her deal passed through the House of Commons again, with plans to hold another vote next week.

He reiterated he did not want to see "rolling" deadlines for Brexit and any request for an extension had to be for a "purpose".

The minister was in London for arguably the most sensitive of the government's St Patrick's Day missions overseas as European leaders began considerations on what type of delay could be granted for the UK's exit.

Her Cabinet (members) are disloyal and she has lost two major votes on her deal.

Speaking on a visit to Paris, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said "everyone would welcome" MPs approving the deal and Brexit being briefly pushed back to get the necessary legislation through.

What happens now? May will seek another parliamentary vote next week.

On Wednesday, Britain's House of Commons voted to prevent Britain from leaving the European Union without a deal in any circumstances.

"Psychologically, it is important that we change this, because the European Research Group thinks this is a trick", Seif said.

MPs earlier rejected an attempt to secure another Brexit referendum by 334 votes to 85.

Ms Mordaunt said: "I voted against delaying Brexit, but the Parliament agreed to an extension".

"I also reiterate our support for a People's Vote - not as a political point-scoring exercise but as a realistic option to break the deadlock".

And in the Labour Party, 41 MPs rebelled against party orders on Thursday to abstain in a vote on a possible new referendum - with 24 supporting a referendum and 17 voting to oppose one.

"Although a no-deal exit was voted down, we can not predict what will happen because it depends on how negotiations with the European Union will go, We will have to watch developments closely", Aso said.

May and her allies hope if the 10 DUP lawmakers can be persuaded to drop their opposition, many Brexiteer Conservatives will follow, giving her Brexit deal a fighting chance of winning Parliament's backing.
