British premier to plead with MPs for more time on Brexit
London: British premier Theresa May on Tuesday will plead with MPs to give her more time for talks with EU officials on Brexit deal, media reports said.
According to reports May is set to brief the parliament on her latest meetings in Brussels and Dublin aimed at securing a divorce agreement with the EU.
Britain is due to leave the bloc on March 29.
British MPs last month rejected the deal struck between May and Brussels. The British premier has since been attempting to secure changes that would satisfy parliament’s lower House of Commons.
According to media reports the Brexiteer MPs in May’s Conservative Party are particularly unhappy with the so-called backstop provision intended to keep the border with Ireland free-flowing.
There are growing fears that it could leave Britain trapped in the European Union’s trade rules.
