UK, European officials discussing possible Brexit delay: Telegraph

Firstpost Tuesday, 8 January 2019 ()
By Guy Faulconbridge LONDON (Reuters) - British and European officials are discussing the possibility of extending Britain's formal notice to withdraw from the European Union amid fears a Brexit deal will not be approved by March 29, The Daily Telegraph reported, citing unidentified sources. The Telegraph cited three unidentified EU sources as saying British officials had been "putting out feelers" and "testing the waters" on an extension of Article 50. Asked about the Telegraph report, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Theresa May's Downing Street office said: "The PM has always said that we would be leaving the EU on 29 March 2019, and we would not extend Article 50." The future of Brexit remains deeply uncertain as British lawmakers are currently expected to next week vote down the divorce deal that May struck with the EU in November.
