UK Cabinet Minister David Lidington told BBC radio the default for the government is still to leave the EU on March 29. He said “I hope still we can leave as soon as possible in an orderly fashion but that depends upon parliamentary approval both in principle of a withdrawal agreement but also then the implementing legislation that has to follow before lawfully we can ratify that treaty”.

And, by the end of March we have to have an alternative in place, not just a resolution of the House of Commons, a preference, but a solution in place that enables us to have an extension so there isn’t crash out on March 29.”

German Justice Minister Katarina Barley told rbb broadcaster that “the EU would be ready to delay Brexit, but one has to have a plan on what is supposed to happen during this period.” She added that delaying Brexit doesn’t bring a solution.
