EU agrees to delay Brexit if deal passed

The EU will agree to postpone Brexit if the UK Parliament passes Prime Minister Theresa May's deal next week.

The EU said on Thursday that they are ready to extend Article 50 which triggers the UK's departure until May 22 to allow the UK more preparation time. But if the House of Commons rejects the deal as it has done twice before, Brexit will take place on April 12, unless Britain has decided by then to take part in this year's European Parliamentary elections.
