Theresa May calls off MPs’ vote on her Brexit deal

PM understood to be delaying Brexit vote

Theresa May is to make a statement to MPs at 15:30 GMT amid reports Tuesday’s vote on her Brexit deal is being delayed. That will be followed by a statement from Commons leader Andrea Leadsom – and then a statement from the Brexit secretary on Article 50.

Any indication of a new timeline for vote?

Theresa May refused to say when the Commons vote on her deal would now be held – saying it would depend how long fresh talks with the EU last. Some MPs called for it to come back to the Commons before Christmas, but Mrs May would only say the final deadline for the vote was 21 January.She said the the UK’s departure date from the EU – 29 March next year – was written into law and the government was “committed” to delivering on it.
