LONDON (Reuters) – The British government will accept a demand by parliament to set out its plan B within days if Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal is rejected next week, Andrea Leadsom, the Leader of the House of Commons said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, parliament voted for an amendment calling on the government to set out its plan B within three working parliamentary days of the Jan. 15 vote, rather than the 21 days specified in Brexit law.
