TEHRAN, Jan 31 - A key member of U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's government has acknowledged that Britain's exit from the European Union may have to be delayed if negotiations on the divorce deal drag on until late March.

UK minister acknowledges possible Brexit delayTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has told the BBC that while it is difficult to know whether negotiations will stretch to the final moment, it may be necessary for "extra time" to pass laws. His comments are getting attention because May's government hasn't been willing to entertain delaying Brexit.

Hunt says "I think it is true that if we ended up approving a deal in the days before 29 March then we might need some extra time to pass critical legislation, but if we are able to make progress sooner, then that might not be necessary."
