Theresa May faces new battle over 'bid to block no-deal Brexit'

The British government denied on February 13 it was secretly plotting to force MPs into a last-minute choice on Brexit between a rejigged deal or a lengthy delay.
A series of amendments - created to change the direction of Brexit - will be considered in the debate, which is expected to be a routine procedure.
If a deal is agreed, MPs will have a second "meaningful vote", like the one in January which saw Mrs May's original plan rejected by a record-breaking 230 votes.
The prime minister has asked MPs to approve a motion simply acknowledging that the process was ongoing and restating their support for the approach.
Another, from the SNP, calls on the government to pass a law leading to the Brexit process being halted.
Commons Speaker John Bercow will announce which amendments to the motion will be put to the vote.

"I am not clear why you believe it would be preferable to seek a say in future European Union trade deals rather than the ability to strike our own deal?"
"We want to leave with a deal, and that's what we're working for". But some Brexiteers have played down that prospect, arguing it is an example of "Project Fear".
May updated parliament following a series of last-gasp meetings held in Belfast, Brussels, and Dublin despite EuropeanUnion leaders' insistence that they will not renegotiate the deal they had already struck with her.
Could Brexit cause a Labour split?
And hands up, on numerous occasions when a big move is predicted, a damp squib often comes along to squelch the expectation.
He said German exports to the United Kingdom had fallen by about 10 per cent in real terms since the 2016 referendum and predicted German GDP could be 0.2 to 0.5 per cent lower in the long term because of Brexit. Also, many members from Mays Conservative party voted against the Deal.
The result of the vote will be purely symbolic, as it will not be legally binding, but a defeat would be a setback for Mrs May as she tries to persuade Brussels to change. The U.K.'s bid for last-minute changes has exasperated European Union leaders, who insist the legally binding withdrawal agreement can't be changed.
