LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Theresa May was set to unveil her new plan to break Britain’s Brexit deadlock today — one expected to look a lot like the old plan that was decisively rejected by Parliament last week.

May was scheduled to brief the House of Commons on how she intends to proceed. There were few signs she planned to make radical changes to her deal, though she may seek alterations to its most contentious section, an insurance policy known as the “backstop” that is intended to guarantee there are no customs checks along the border between EU member Ireland and the U.K.’s Northern Ireland after Brexit.

The EU insists it will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.
