Brexit delays


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.
