Theresa May could this week be forced to seek another delay to Brexit, under a new piece of legislation brought forward by Members of Parliament. The legislation, called the European Union (Withdrawal) (No.5) Bill, could be passed through the House of Commons on Thursday if plans by MPs opposed to a no-deal Brexit are successful. Under the bill the prime minister would be forced to seek an indeterminate extension to the Article 50 process which is currently due to finish on April 12. Any delay beyond that date would require the UK to take part in the upcoming European Parliament elections in May. The length of any extension would be for the prime minister to decide in negotiations with the EU.
