The sooner we vote on May's Brexit deal the better -UK minister
LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) - British environment minister
Michael Gove said on Tuesday the sooner parliament voted again
on whether to approve Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal
May's divorce deal to leave the European Union has been
rejected by lawmakers twice already but the government is
planning to hold a third vote, even though the Speaker of
parliament has said it had to be substantially different.
"The sooner we can have a vote the better," Gove told Sky
May is set to ask the bloc for an extension to the leaving
date of March 29 and Gove said she would provide details of the
request on Tuesday or Wednesday.
"The prime minister will be laying out a little bit later
today or tomorrow what the terms of that are," he said.
