Brexit delay requested will be granted only if Commons approve withdrawal deal next week – Tusk

Reading Time: 1 minute

Theresa May’s request to delay the U.K.’s departure from the EU will only be granted if the House of Commons passes the Brexit deal agreed between London and Brussels, European Council Donald Tusk said Wednesday.

Responding in a brief statement to U.K. Prime Minister’s request to extend until June 30 the deadline for the U.K.’s departure, Tusk said such an extension could win approval in Brussels but only upon ratification of the withdrawal deal, which the House of Commons has rejected twice with huge majorities against it in January and March.
