    LONDON (AP) — The British Parliament expects to vote on Brexit again on Jan. 29 following extended debate on the government's plans and possible amendments.

    Prime Minister Theresa May plans to return to Parliament on Monday to present her revised Brexit plan following the crushing defeat of her withdrawal plan

    She will announce her "Plan B" after meeting with a variety of opposition parties in the coming days with the goal of finding some sort of consensus.

    Main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn of the Labour Party has thus far declined to meet with the prime minister.
