Theresa May to ask MPs for more time on Brexit

Theresa May to ask MPs for more time on Brexit

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May makes a statement outside 10 Downing Street in central London after winning a confidence vote on 12 December 2018.

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29 but has yet to find a deal which is acceptable to both Brussels and lawmakers at home, raising the prospect of a disorderly exit that could damage the world's fifth largest economy.

On Wednesday, Theresa May is to ask MPs for more time to secure legally-binding changes to the Irish border backstop.

Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said: "I think that gives that sense of timetable, clarity and objective on what we are doing with the European Union - taking that work forward and our determination to get a deal - but equally knowing that role that Parliament very firmly has".

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will this week ask Parliament to give her more time to renegotiate her Brexit deal with the European Union, promising lawmakers a further chance to take control of the process before the clock runs out, according to officials with knowledge of her plans.

She has said she wants to bring a revised deal back to parliament for a vote "as soon as possible" but has not yet set a date for doing so.

The government will give parliament another chance to debate the issue by February 27 using the same format described above, if a deal has not been agreed before then.

Huawei is Open to EU Supervision - says Executive in Speech
Poland will also nearly certainly exclude Huawei from its efforts to build 5G infrastructure, according to new reports . The U.S. government has already banned Huawei and ZTE products from federal agencies.

Brokenshire's promise of another vote two weeks later is created to discourage lawmakers from binding the government's hands this week. A no-deal Brexit means a really hard border between north and south in Ireland, it's contrary to the Good Friday Agreement and it will cause an enormous fissure within the United Kingdom'.

The opposition Labour party has denounced May's strategy as time wasting aimed at forcing parliament to vote through a deal at the last moment.

The BBC has reported that Mrs May will offer MPs another vote on amendments to her Brexit withdrawal deal if an agreement has not been reached by the end of February.

There are also few signs of concessions coming May's way from Brussels in the coming days. Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay is set to head to Brussels on Monday for talks.

The sides are stuck on the issue of how to keep the Irish border open after Britain leaves.

But May's office published her reply to Corbyn late on Sunday, showing little appetite for a U-turn which would risk splitting her fractious party by ruling out the scope for Britain to strike its own trade deals around the world.
