British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday she would allow parliament to vote on March 14 on whether to delay Brexit if MPs reject both her deal and the prospect of leaving the EU without an agreement.

If those two options are rejected "the government will on March 14 bring forward a motion on whether parliament wants to see a short, limited extension to Article 50," May said, adding that any delay could only be until the end of June.
