British MPs are cancelling a planned holiday next month to allow time to pass key legislation ahead of the scheduled date for Brexit on March 29, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman said on Thursday. 

“The fact that recess won’t be taking place and MPs will be sitting shows you that we are taking all available steps to make sure that March 29 is our exit date,” the spokesman said. (AFP)

A video grab from footage broadcast by the UK Parliament’s Parliamentary Recording Unit (PRU) shows Britain’s opposition Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn (R) and Britain’s opposition Labour party Brexit secretary Keir Starmer (2R) listen as Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May stands and delivers a statement to the House of Commons in London on November 26, 2018, to update parliament on the newly-agreed Brexit deal.
