Theresa May gains two weeks' Brexit reprieve from British lawmakers

Updated : February 28, 2019 06:59 AM IST

After months of saying that Britain must leave the EU on time on March 29, May opened up the possibility on Tuesday of a short limited extension to the exit date.
May's climbdown took much of the heat out of a series of votes on Wednesday that could have ripped control of the entire process away from the government.
After a deal she negotiated with European leaders was rejected on January 15 in the biggest parliamentary defeat in modern British history, May is hoping to bring back a tweaked divorce accord for a vote, which could come as early as next week but may not take place until March 12.
