Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The extension is being done under a Statutory Instrument which (as far as I gather) only requires a vote in parliament. By wonderful irony, it doesn't matter if it passes, because EU Law has precedence over UK Law!.

From the Financial Times (may be paywalled?)

"The prime minister on Monday confirmed that MPs would vote on Wednesday to change the exit date from March 29. She noted that if the vote on changing the exit date did not pass, Brexit would still be delayed because of the supremacy of EU law".
