London: Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday she remained “determined” to deliver Brexit, hours after formally requesting European Union leaders grant a three-month delay to Britain’s departure from the bloc.

“I passionately hope MPs will find a way to back the deal I have negotiated with the EU,” she said in a statement, referring to an agreement British lawmakers have already rejected twice but which May plans to put to another vote.
