Theresa May: I regret need for Brexit delay – BBC News – BBC News

Theresa May has arrived in Brussels, telling reporters that she “regrets” the need for the emergency summit because the UK “should have left the EU by now”.

Talks between the government and Labour have been “serious and constructive”, she says, but the UK needs “extra time” to ensure it can leave in a “smooth and orderly way”.

The important thing, she says, is that any extension to Article 50 allows the UK to leave the EU “at the point at which we ratify the deal”.

“That would enable us to leave by the 22 May,” she adds.

Theresa May has arrived at the EU leaders summit in Brussels.

The prime minister addressed reporters, ahead of meeting EU leaders and Council president Donald Tusk.
