LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May’s government will on Wednesday formalise its promise to offer a vote on delaying Brexit by supporting a change to the wording of a motion being debated in parliament, the Daily Mail’s political editor said on Twitter.

Proposed by opposition Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper, the amendment notes May’s commitment to hold a vote on her revised Brexit deal by March 12, and if parliament rejects both this deal and the idea of leaving without a deal, to give members of parliament a vote on March 14 on whether to delay Brexit.

Voting is expected from 1900 GMT.
