De­lay in Brexit deal on the cards

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

LON­DON: Bri­tain would be able to han­dle a de­lay in se­cur­ing a Brexit deal with the EU if the talks ex­tended into Novem­ber and missed their in­for­mal Oc­to­ber dead­line, Cab­i­net Of­fice min­is­ter David Lid­ing­ton said on Fri­day.

“If it slips be­yond Oc­to­ber into Novem­ber, I think that is man­age­able,” he told the BBC, when asked about com­ments by the EU’s chief ne­go­tia­tor sug­gest­ing that a deal may not be reached by Oc­to­ber. – Reuters
