Leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said he could accept a short delay to Britain's planned departure from the European Union on March 29 on the condition Theresa May pursues his plan rather than hers for a Brexit deal.
Mr Rees-Mogg, who chairs the influential pro-Brexit European Research Group (ERG) within the Tory Party, said a short extension to the timetable could be accepted if the government struck a deal with Europe along the lines of the so-called Malthouse Compromise.
It comes after MPs effectively demanded that Mrs May renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement after her original plan was rejected by lawmakers.
ERGChairman and leading Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said a delay was 'not impossible'
More time for a new deal?
