Brexit law ‘gim­mick’

Coventry Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

THERESA May’s plan to write the date of the UK’s sep­a­ra­tion from the Euro­pean Union into law has been dis­missed as a “gim­mick” and led to fresh warn­ings it could pro­voke a Tory re­volt as MPs de­bated the Brexit leg­is­la­tion.

Mrs May wants 11pm GMT on March 29, 2019 en­shrined in law as the point that the UK breaks away. Shadow Brexit sec­re­tary Sir Keir Starmer said the Gov­ern­ment’s bid to write the date of with­drawal into the law was a “des­per­ate gim­mick”.
