LONDON (Reuters) - British lawmakers will be able to vote on eight alternative Brexit options on Wednesday in a bid to find a way forward which could break the deadlock in parliament, the Speaker of the House of Commons said.

Indicative votes will be held on proposals such as leaving with no-deal on April 12, seeking a “common market 2.0” deal that includes membership of the single market and a customs arrangement, and a plan for a confirmatory public vote to approve a Brexit deal.

The result will be announced on Wednesday evening after a debate ends at 2100 GMT, the Speaker, John Bercow, said.
