Parliament to debate Brexit developments on Wednesday  

MEPs will discuss the extension of the UK’s EU membership with Council and Commission representatives on Wednesday at 9.00.

Following the UK government’s application to extend the country’s membership of the EU and the corresponding European Council decision on 10 April to provide a flexible extension until 31 October 2019, MEPs are set to take stock of the specifics of this decision and recent developments in a debate with Council and Commission representatives.

Assuming that the UK will still be an EU member state between 23 and 26 May, it will have to take part in the European Parliament elections on these dates, or leave the EU on 1 June 2019.
