A Brexit deal would not 'break spell' of Nigel Farage, MP warns

The bloc has contributed Britain until October 31 to ratify the Brexit agreement or leave the bloc with no deal to smooth the way.

"But she hopes Parliament will agree to a Brexit plan before MEPs start their session in July", May's spokesperson was quoted by Xinhua as saying.

British Prime Minister Theresa May stands by her commitment to resign after she completes "phase one" of the Brexit process to open the way for a new leader to negotiate the second phase, her spokesman said on Wednesday.

May replied: "This is not an issue about me and it's not an issue about her".

"This is an election about delivering Brexit and we are in a situation where Labour and the Liberal Democrats are on about having a second referendum rather than honouring the people's vote we have already had", he said.

Ms Leadsom, who stood for the leadership in 2016 but pulled out to give Mrs May a clear run at the job, told ITV's Good Morning Britain: 'I've supported her for the last three years to get Brexit over the line.

Labour is keen to regain momentum after losing more than 80 council seats in a disappointing performance in last week's English local elections.

The United Kingdom was initially supposed to leave the European Union on 29 March.

But a Downing Street source indicated that Mrs May was resisting setting out an any more explicit timetable for her departure.

Meanwhile, talks on a compromise deal were continuing in Whitehall on Wednesday evening, with Labour insisting the government still needed to shift on its red lines.

The two parties have been in discussions for over a month to try to broker a Brexit deal that can secure majority support in parliament after May's minority government suffered three defeats on her preferred deal this year and was forced to delay Britain's original departure from the European Union from March 29 to April 12.

Leaving the meeting, Sir Graham suggested the delay was to allow Mrs May one last push to get her Brexit deal through Parliament before the European elections, which are expected to be another brutal defeat for Conservative candidates.
