LONDON (AP) - Acknowledging that the Brexit process is stuck, the British government says it will give lawmakers a series of votes on what to do next if Parliament does not approve an EU divorce deal by next week.
    
Prime Minister Theresa May has struck a deal with the EU on withdrawal terms, but Parliament has twice rejected it - and Britain is due to leave the EU in 15 days, on March 29. Lawmakers are due to vote later Thursday on whether to seek to delay the country's exit.
    
May has signaled that she plans to try one more time next week to win backing for her deal.
    
Her deputy prime minister, David Lidington, says that if it is rejected, the government will "facilitate" votes in late March or early April "to seek a majority on the way forward."
