United Kingdom government says it will push ahead with efforts to pass its Brexit deal, despite a major setback to its plans.
Boris Johnson had to ask the European Union for an extension to the UK’s thirty-first October exit date after Members of Parliament backed a move to delay approval of the deal on Saturday.
Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab said he was confident enough MPs would back the deal next week, and Brexit would still happen by the deadline.
Labour, however, has said it would back moves to put the deal to a referendum.
The government has vowed to press ahead with the legislation, the Withdrawal Agreement Bill WAB, to implement the Brexit deal next week.
