UK parliament approves Brexit law forcing PM Theresa May to consult on delay
Updated : April 09, 2019 06:28 AM IST
May has already asked Brussels to extend Britain's EU membership to allow talks with the opposition Labour Party in search of different exit plan - a last-ditch attempt to keep control after parliament rejected her Brexit deal three times.
May is due to travel to Paris and Berlin on Tuesday to press her request for a short delay before it is formally discussed by EU leaders at a special summit on Wednesday.
The government had warned that the legislation was poorly drafted, rushed through parliament and set a dangerous constitutional precedent. Pro-Brexit lawmakers also fiercely opposed the bill.
