Labour's policy is to push for a general election if the Prime Minister fails to get her Brexit deal through Parliament.

The prime minister had cancelled a vote on her deal last month at the last minute to avoid a humiliating defeat.

A Labour source said the party was expected to vote in favour of the amendment to the Bill.

In response to Corbyn, the chairman of May's Conservative Party said Labour did not have a plan for Brexit.

An opinion poll commissioned by the People's Vote campaign suggested Labour could suffer a backlash from voters if it failed to oppose Brexit in the Commons.

"We're now talking as if it is expected that the Government next Tuesday will be defeated on the most important piece of legislation that has come before Parliament probably in 50 or more years, that the Government has devoted two years of its time to try to negotiate, and we're now nearly accepting that this will simply be defeated and voted down", he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

The YouGov poll of more than 25,000 people indicated a second referendum is backed by 75% of Labour voters.

"The reason Theresa May has had such a botched set of negotiations is because of her red lines". Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. "I think what's important is that if we are to secure assurances, MPs are aware of what they are before the vote takes place", the spokesman said.

"And it seems to me, at a personal level, what I would then say is that is the time when we would then say to people "now make your decision on what we have managed to conclude".

"Rather than using it - as some people I think do - as an opportunity to attack the Labour Party and the leadership of the Labour Party".

She is hoping new proposals on Northern Ireland will change enough MPs' minds to save the deal.

Elsewhere, he denied reports that British officials were talking to European officials about possibly delaying Brexit to avoid leaving the bloc on March 29 without a deal.

When pressed by host Mishal Husain whether this was a concrete pledge, he said: "We have said that we will bring forward a vote of no confidence in the Government when they lose their key legislation".
