Law­mak­ers asked to al­low more time for Brexit deal

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

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 Feb. 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. Some law­mak­ers want to try to seize con­trol and steer the coun­try to­ward a softer exit.
