Corbyn Asks May To Delay Brexit Till “A Better Deal For Peoples’ Jobs And The Economy”
Labour Leader has called the government to drop the “unnecessary exit date deadline” of the 29th March 2019 from the text of the EU Withdrawal Bill, since the “whole country” would rather wait for a better deal.

The leader said the deadline is “unnecessary” and could force Theresa May to sign up to a withdrawal agreement which damages the economy.

Earlier this year, Ms May released the two-year Article 50 process, formally setting the exit deadline of 29 March 2019.

During a speech in the Commons, while a Tory MPs praised Ms May for the Brussels deal, Jeremy Corbyn said the PM had only “scraped through”. Mr Corbyn said:

“The Government originally aimed for phase one negotiations to be complete in October, then everything was ready for an announcement on Monday, and ultimately we saw a rather fudged agreement late last week.”

Mr Corbyn asked: “Has this experience given the Prime Minister reason to consider dropping the unnecessary exit date deadline of the 29 March 2019 from the EU Withdrawal Bill,”

He added: “I’m sure the whole House, and probably the whole country, would rather get the best possible deal a little bit later if that meant a better deal for peoples’ jobs and the economy.”

The PM replied: “We’re leaving the European Union on that date, that is what the British people voted for and that is what this government is going to out in place.”
