British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced plans to bring her Brexit withdrawal agreement back for a fourth Parliament vote in June, setting an effective deadline for the ongoing cross-party talks to find a consensus on Britain's exit terms from the European Union (EU).

Downing Street said in a statement on Tuesday evening that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill will be brought before the House of Commons in the week beginning June 3 in order for the UK to be able to leave the 28-member economic bloc within the October 31 deadline.

"The Prime Minister met the Leader of the Opposition (Jeremy Corbyn) in the House of Commons to make clear our determination to bring the talks to a conclusion and deliver on the referendum result to leave the EU," a Downing Street spokesperson said.

"It is imperative we do so then if the UK is to leave the EU before the summer parliamentary recess," the spokespersonsaid. — PTI
