In reality, "Plan B" looks pretty similar to "Plan A", and Theresa May remains focussed on reducing concern surrounding the Irish backstop.

Forced to accept at this stage that Corbyn is not backing outright a second referendum, the Remain faction have been forced to change tack and are relying on the Cooper/Boles amendment and others to give the necessary time to thwart Brexit. This is your comprehensive guide on who wants to do what, and how.

She refused to rule out a no-deal Brexit, warning that another referendum would strengthen the hand of those seeking to break up the United Kingdom and could damage social cohesion by undermining faith in democracy. Parliament would ultimately need to vote on any revised deal.

What happens next: MPs will vote on the amendments and possibly amendments to amendments on Tuesday evening. Amendments will be selected on January 29 by speaker John Bercow and can then be put to a vote. In the past, European leaders have made it clear that a legitimate reason would be required to justify extra time - for instance, a second referendum or a meaningful shift in the United Kingdom negotiating stance.

It seeks to shift control of Brexit from May's government to parliament by demanding that on February 5, the rule that government business takes precedence in parliament is overturned. The Cooper amendment specifies a nine-month delay, but this could be edited if and when lawmakers get their chance to vote on an extension. Last week I voted for a Brexit deal that would take us out of the European Union on 29 March.

It just gives everyone a bit more time.

Instead, Mr Miliband said, Labour should throw its weight behind a more widely supported proposal from backbencher Yvette Cooper.

On Thursday morning, MPs supporting the "People's Vote" campaign withdrew an amendment in support of a second referendum they planned to table ahead of next week's vote.

Sterling's rise was helped by hopes that the Labour Party would move to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

Under the Cooper-Boles plan, this would be the deadline for the government to pass a Brexit deal through the Commons.

Irish taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said that the United Kingdom and Ireland would need to arrange a "bilateral agreement" on "full alignment" of customs in order to avoid a hard border with Northern Ireland, should Britain crash out of the European Union without a deal.

Britain's Parliament will try again to find a way through Brexit on Tuesday.

"It is not stating that the party supports a second referendum in any way and indeed if it was passed, the amendment, and it went to a vote on the specific issues, then that would be a decision for the party to take at the time".

Parliament will hold a day of debate on May's proposed next steps and the amendments.

And it says the government should hold a public vote on either a deal or a proposition that has MPs' support.
