No long Brexit delay without election of British MEPs, says leaked paper

Saturday 20:53 GMT

Brussels will have to terminate the UK’s extended membership of the European Union on 1 July if elections for British MEPs have not been held, a leaked legal document reveals.

A three-month delay to Brexit beyond 29 March will not carry any conditions, but anything longer than that requires Britain to have taken part in European parliamentary elections, ambassadors have been told. EU law does not stand in the way of multiple extensions to the UK’s membership if requested, the document says.
