Yesterday evening, (2nd April), the Prime Minister offered to work with the Labour Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons, Jeremy Corbyn, to find a way to break the deadlock over Brexit in the UK Parliament.

MPs have rejected both the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement and a number of indicative options in a series of votes over the last few weeks, with no signs yet that any single option has the support of a majority.

The Prime Minister will ask for an extension to the Article 50 period beyond April 12th. She hopes that an agreement could be put to MPs on April 10th, when the EU will hold an emergency summit. She also ruled out leaving the EU without a deal.
