MPs in Westminster are preparing for the latest vote on Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal agreement.
March 29th was originally due to be the day the UK formally left the EU.
However, the British government last week secured an extension to the process amid the ongoing political impasse in the House of Commons.
Today, MPs will instead debate Brexit ahead of another key vote on the deal.
Crucially, the motion will not be a third 'meaningful vote' as it will not cover the section of the agreement covering the future relationship with Europe.
Theresa May was forced to remove the 'political declaration' from the vote, as House speaker John Bercow had ruled that she could not ask the house to vote again unless what was on offer was “substantially” different.
Brexit withdrawal agreement
If Mrs May does manage to secure support for her twice-rejected deal, an 'orderly' Brexit would take place on May 22nd.
However, the DUP and a number of hardline pro-Brexit Conservative MPs have continued to oppose the agreement.

The continued opposition from a number of Tory rebels comes despite Theresa May's pledge to step down if the deal passes.
Labour, meanwhile, has insisted it will continue to vote against the deal.
The main opposition party yesterday warned that the two sections of the withdrawal agreement can't be separated, suggesting: "It creates an even bigger problem, which is you have a withdrawal agreement with no idea where you're heading.”
Earlier this week, MPs rejected eight alternative Brexit options in a series of 'indicative votes'.
Two proposals - one for a UK-wide customs union with the EU, and another to hold a second 'confirmatory' public vote on any deal - received the most support.
Some MPs have expressed their hopes that another round of votes on the alternatives will be held on Monday.
The EU has previously set a deadline of April 12th for the British government to come forward with an alternative plan if they can't get the withdrawal agreement through parliament this week.
