LONDON: Prime Minister Theresa May is considering bringing her twice-defeated Brexit deal back to parliament after some of its eurosceptic opponents indicated they could change their minds and back it amid fears another loss could mean Britain staying in the European Union.

If she could get the deal approved, it would mark a spectacular turnaround of her crisis-riven tenure.

May`s blueprint, an attempt to retain close trading and security ties with the EU while leaving the bloc`s formal political structures, was defeated by 230 votes in parliament on Jan. 15, and by 149 votes on March 12.

To succeed at the third attempt, she must win over many of the 75 lawmakers in her Conservative party who opposed it before. She has offered to step down if it passes.

Below is the list of Conservative lawmakers who have now indicated they could now back May`s deal and the others who voted against the prime minister`s deal on March 12.
