LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party said votes on alternative Brexit plans to Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal could be held in parliament on Wednesday, and there was support for other proposals.

“The amendment to allow indicative votes was only very narrowly defeated in parliament and it is coming back again as an amendment on Monday, and if it is carried then those indicative votes will take place on Wednesday afternoon,” Jeremy Corbyn told Sky News on Friday.
