MAY SEEKS MORE TIME FOR BREXIT DEAL

Deccan Chronicle - - World -

London, Feb. 10: With Brexit just 47 days away, the Bri­tish govern­ment asked law­mak­ers on Sun­day to give Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May more time to re­work her di­vorce deal with the Euro­pean Union.

Com­mu­ni­ties sec­re­tary James Bro­ken­shire said Par­lia­ment would get to pass judg­ment on May’s Brexit plan “no later than Fe­bru­ary 27.”

The prom­ise is a bid to avert a show­down on Thurs­day, when Par­lia­ment is set to de­bate and vote on next moves in the Brexit process.
