Theresa May’s withdrawal bill delayed
Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal bill will not be published or debated until early June, the government says.
The prime minister is under pressure to resign following a backlash from her own MPs against her pledged "new deal" on Brexit.
Andrea Leadsom quit as Commons Leader, saying she could not announce the bill which had "new elements that I fundamentally oppose".
She has been replaced by Treasury minister Mel Stride.
Downing Street has confirmed that the prime minister met Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Home Secretary Sajid Javid at No 10 on Friday morning and would "give full consideration their views" about the bill.
May had told the Commons that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - the legislation needed to implement the agreement between the UK and EU - would be published on Friday so MPs would have "the maximum possible time to study its detail".
