British lawmakers have voted on eight different possible Brexit options, however not one of the same scenarios received majority support that would clarify the U.K.’s course.

Westminster is seeking to find an alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal which has so far been rejected, twice.

Lawmakers voted on options that included leaving the European Union without a deal, staying in the bloc’s customs union and single market, putting any EU divorce deal to a public referendum, and cancelling Brexit if the prospect of a no-deal departure gets close.

The strongest support was for a plan to stay in a customs union with the bloc after Brexit, which was defeated by 272 to 264.

Lawmakers plan to narrow the list of options down and hold more votes on Monday and time is ticking as Britain has until April 12 to find a new plan, or crash out of the EU with no deal.
