The final vote on whether Britain leaves the European Union on March 29 with a deal would be pushed back into March.
Meanwhile, Britain's Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay will meet the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier for talks in Brussels later as the deadlock continues.
She also sparked a row by setting out plans to potentially short-circuit parliamentary rules in order to get a deal ratified by the end of March.
The news has been welcomed by business groups including the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) who say it will help to support jobs and ensure businesses can keep trading without disruption.

"The position of the Brexiteers today, to sum it up in one sentence is 'No. There aren't any alternative proposals from them".
Some lawmakers want to use Thursday's votes to impose conditions on May's Conservative government in an attempt to rule out a cliff-edge "no deal" Brexit that would see Britain crash out of the European Union without a framework for smooth future relations.

Time pressure is mounting.
With just over six weeks before Britain's scheduled exit day on March 29, the move is meant to reassure members from across the House of Commons who are concerned that May is deliberately running down the clock and risking a potentially disastrous no-deal divorce.
Mrs May said told MPs on Tuesday she was still pursuing three options with the European Union: finding a different way of operating a border that doesn't involve physical infrastructure or checks on the frontier; putting a time limit on the backstop; or adding to the backstop a unilateral exit mechanism for Britain.
Britain's economy slowed previous year to its weakest growth rate since the global financial crisis as mounting uncertainty over Brexit weighed on businesses and kept a lid on their investments, official figures showed Monday.

With 45 days to go, former attorney general Dominic Grieve warned that time was running perilously short for ratification of any deal under the terms of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act.
"Whatever route MPs choose over the next few weeks - no deal, Theresa May's deal, a softer Brexit or delay - all roads will probably lead to an early election", he wrote in Britain's The Sunday Times.
Although Britain's Treasury chief Philip Hammond argued the British economy remains "fundamentally strong" and is "enjoying the longest unbroken quarterly growth streak" among the Group of Seven industrialised countries, he conceded that Brexit unease was taking its toll.
The new pledge would be for a repeat of this process by February 27. "I'm afraid this has gone on longer than we would have liked".
