Theresa May's government submitted the respective request at the consideration of the Parliament. Next, the Cabinet would turn to the EU asking to delay Brexit. The statement says that Article 50 would be extended by June 30, if the MPs approve the Prime Minister's agreement by March 20. If the agreement is not reached by then, the government will be looking for a further extension, but the EU would have to accept it and set the boundaries.
UK withdrawal from the EU was set from March 29, 2019. It was defined by the referendum in June 2016, where almost 52 percent of the citizens supported the exit from the EU so that the country could get back the control over its resources, laws, borders and the domestic market.
