EU leaders set to offer UK Brexit delay to May 22
EU leaders are set to offer the UK a plan which would delay Brexit from March 29 to May 22, on condition that MPs approve Theresa May’s withdrawal deal.
If the deal is rejected in its third “meaningful vote” in the Commons, the UK would be given until April 12 to come to the European Council with its proposals for the way forward.
If the UK agreed to take part in European Parliament elections in May, the possibility would be open for a further extension of several months.
It is understood that the details of the proposal will be announced in Brussels by European Council president Donald Tusk and European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.
