London (CNN)The UK government has announced for the first time that it is considering options to delay Brexit.
Prime Minister Theresa May made clear in a statement to the House of Commons on Tuesday that, in the event her deal fails to secure parliamentary approval on March 12, she will allow lawmakers two further votes.
First, on March 13, the commons will be offered the chance to approve the UK leaving the EU without a deal on March 29. Although no-deal is the default option in the Article 50 process,
it’s unlikely that there would be an explicit majority in Parliament for such an outcome.
