It's not possible.

Which, in theory, would require an Act of Parliament. If that wasn't forthcoming, it would require another High Court case to remind the PM, as it did with the Gina Miller case.

May is possibly the most constitutionally unaware PM of my lifetime.
They could still commit to honouring the result of any second referendum but it would not be legally binding!
I doubt they would make an Act of Parliament because that would be setting a precedent under English law for surrendering Parliamentary sovereignty; which nobody wants to do.
