WILL THE BREXIT NEGOTIATING PERIOD BE EXTENDED?
CHESHAM & AMERSHAM’S MP, DAME CHERYL GILLAN, QUESTIONS THE PRIME MINISTER – AND THE ANSWER IS NO
Here is their exchange, in the House of Commons on Monday 26 November:
Nobody can fail to acknowledge the personal commitment, determination and best intentions of the Prime Minister. If this House does not pass the agreement, will she confirm that she has ruled out extending the negotiating period, or even purchasing an extension to that period?
The extension of the negotiating period would be an extension of article 50. I am clear that we will not extend article 50 and that we will leave the EU on 29 March next year.
