A new vote on May's deal is likely next week, when those lawmakers must decide whether to back a deal they feel does not offer a clean break from the European Union, or reject it and accept that Brexit could be watered down or even thwarted by a long delay.
EU Council President Donald Tusk will be in Dublin on Tuesday to meet with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and it is expected the shape of a potential Brexit extension could be discussed at that meeting.
FX investors are awaiting another key Brexit vote next week that will see UK Prime Minister Theresa May have her deal voted on for the third time.
The vote against a no-deal Brexit was non-binding, but investors believe Britain will now avert a disorderly Brexit that would severely damage its economy.
The backstop is "an insurance policy that would only be used if we are unable to agree a sufficiently ambitious future relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom that would remove any need for it", Mr Donohoe said in a speech at Bloomberg's European headquarters in London on Friday.
The European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, questioned why the E.U. should grant an extension if the British government is "not ready for a cross-party approach to break the current deadlock?"
For several months the core of the alliance have been meeting nearly daily, with a larger meeting of the group about once a week. Parliament voted this week to seek to delay Britain's departure until at least June 30.
Downing Street said this was a "natural consequence" of Mrs May's decision to offer a free vote on an issue where there are "strong views on all sides of the debate". Options in the longer term might include agreeing to a softer kind of Brexit, holding a general election or a new referendum.
"I think people just want to get on out of the European Union and start building for our future", he said.
A cross party amendment from Labour's Hilary Benn and Yvette Cooper with Tory Oliver Letwin cancels Government business next Wednesday and sets the stage for "indicative votes" meant to identify what kind of Brexit could pass the Commons. But Mrs May's party is still severely split, with more than half voting against the delay. And they also rejected a cross-party plan to allow MPs to take control of the Brexit process to hold a series of votes on the next steps, by the narrow margin of two votes.
Mrs May has put forward two deals to Parliament, both of which have been rejected in an overwhelming majority.
