Will UK delay Brexit deadline?
Brexit can be delayed beyond the scheduled leaving date of March 29, UK Cabinet ministers said.
A backlog of at least six essential Bills that must be passed before Britain quits the European Union has left ministers convinced the timetable will be extended, the Evening Standard reported.
"The legislative timetable is now very, very tight indeed. Certainly if there was defeat on Tuesday and it took some time before it got resolved, it’s hard to see how we can get all the legislation through by March 29," a senior minister said.
Senior ministers added that a majority of the Cabinet now support the idea of staging indicative votes in the Commons to see if a different Brexit plan is supported, despite British PM Theresa May publicly opposing the idea.
