Boris Johnson will ask EU for Brexit deadline extension if deal isn’t reached by October 19

BORIS Johnson will ask the EU for an extension to the Brexit deadline if a deal isn’t agreed by October 19, court documents say. 

U-TURN: The papers indicate the government will ask the EU for an extension

The papers, submitted to a Scottish court, indicate that the British prime minister will comply with the so-called Benn Act which requires the government to request an extension to the October 31 Brexit deadline. 

The documents contradict statements given in parliament by the prime minister last week. 

A Downing Street source said: “People will have to wait to see how this is reconciled. 

“The government is making its true position on delay known privately in Europe and this will become public soon.”
