(L-R) Britain's International Development Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt, Britain's Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster David Lidington, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and Britain's Home Secretary Sajid Javid in the House of Commons in London, February 13, 2019. Worn down by three years of indecision in London, EU leaders on Thursday were grudgingly leaning toward giving the United Kingdom more time to ease itself out of the bloc.
Labour's Stephanie Peacock, who quit her party's frontbench to vote against a second Brexit referendum, said the decision would leave agency workers unprotected for the current and the next financial year, even though the Commons approved the repeal this month.
Whether or not a fresh vote on the twice-defeated deal is held this week, MPs are likely to be given a series of "indicative ballots" created to reveal what outcome they could all support.
"If parliament does not agree a deal next week, the EU Council will extend Article 50 until 12 April", May said, referring to the EU treaty article governing Brexit.
The confrontation may come to a head at a Cabinet session expected on Monday, local time.
Elsewhere Mr Johnson claimed the Government had "chickened out" of delivering Brexit this week and told Mrs May to set out "convincing proofs" of how the next phase of the negotiations will be different from the last to win support for her deal.
For a time it appeared as though it was all over bar the shooting, but squabbles over who should succeed Mrs May as a so-called "caretaker" or interim prime minister may have strangled the plot at birth.
But she may be persuaded that her position is untenable if top Cabinet ministers and other senior party members desert her.
But he said her inability to engage with colleagues had exacerbated divisions over Brexit, describing her as "the living embodiment of the closed door".

"At the moment, I think the option of remaining is not off the table and it's not beyond the bounds of possibility by any stretch of the imagination", she said.
Supporters of a second Brexit referendum who marched through central London yesterday were joined by Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon, Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson, and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
For her part, May is planning to call for the third vote on her Brexit deal on Thursday, hoping that pro-Brexit MPs and Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) would either back the deal, or pass the "soft Brexit" compromise with the EU.
More than 4 million people endorsed an electronic petition this week in favour of revoking Article 50, the act that formally triggered the Brexit process.
When asked about possible options for Brexit, Hammond said he was not sure there was a majority in parliament for a second referendum but that it was a coherent proposition.
"We need to open up this process because we have rejected her deal, we've rejected no-deal, the European Union has chose to give us a little more time and we've really got to get on with it", said Labour Party lawmaker Hilary Benn, who chairs the House of Commons Brexit committee.
The longer delay would allow time for a change in prime minister if the growing list of Mrs May's opponents in the Conservative Party manage to force her out. "She's done her best". But across the country you can see the anger.' One Tory Whip said he wept as pressure to bring MPs in line escalated last week. "Everyone feels betrayed", Freeman tweeted.

Yet, almost three years since the 2016 referendum, it remains unclear how, when or if Brexit will ever take place.
