British Prime Minister Theresa May was holding a cabinet meeting Tuesday, a day after the House of Commons voted to take control of the parliamentary timetable, allowing lawmakers to vote on alternatives to the Brexit deal May negotiated with the EU.
The government usually controls the scheduling of votes in Parliament.
May's government said Parliament's decision to take control of the stalled process of leaving the European Union underscores the need for lawmakers to approve her twice-defeated deal.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the BBC on Tuesday that the government won't "pre-commit" to accepting the option backed by lawmakers.
Hancock said lawmakers should support the prime minister's agreement because "the best way through this impasse is the one deal that's been negotiated with the EU."
