May answers questions in parliament

11:08, December 20, 2018

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday (December 19) she would set out in the New Year what assurances she had won from the European Union over her Brexit deal.

Answering questions in parliament, May told the leader of the main opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, that she was working with the EU to gain the assurances she believes are necessary to win the support of the lower chamber.

"We will set out what is achieved in our EU discussions when we return in the New Year, when we have had those discussions," she said.

Corbyn responded: "The prime minister is stalling for time," calling May's Brexit plan a "shoddy deal," which has no parliamentary majority.

Meanwhile, the European Union set out a series of short-term measures to limit disruption to air traffic, financial services, and trade if Britain left the bloc without a deal next March. 

Theresa May says she is working with the EU to gain the assurances she believes are necessary to win the support of the lower chamber, as the EU set out its terms for a no-deal Brexit on Wednesday.
