British Prime Minister Theresa May is preparing to delay a vote on her Brexit deal until March, despite warnings from Remain ministers that she will face resignations if she attempts to “run down the clock”. James Brokenshire, the Communities Secretary, confirmed that the Prime Minister’s deal may not be ready by the end of February. In a bid to appease Remain ministers, who have threatened to quit to stop a no-deal Brexit, he pledged that the Government would allow amendments to be tabled on February 27. However, Remain ministers are increasingly concerned that it means the Prime Minister will delay a vote on her deal until just days before Britain leaves the EU.
