Britain's Brexit minister says: I don't want a long delay

"One possibility would be a flexible extension, which would last only as long as necessary and no longer than one year, as beyond that date we will need to decide unanimously on some key European projects".

Leaving the European Union with "No Deal" is the preferred outcome for just under one in four Britons (24 per cent), while only 12 per cent want to Leave the EU with Theresa May's deal and 1 in 6 want Britain to leave the EU but remain in the Single Market / Customs Union.

May will meet with Tusk before the start of Wednesday's Summit and another bilateral rendezvous is expected as soon as the EU-27 reaches an agreement on their position once the cocludes.

She met French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin for talks ahead of the summit.

At Prime Minister's Questions, Tory backbencher Craig Tracey said she should abandon her "diluted deal" and take Britain out on World Trade Organisation terms, while Henry Smith warned that an extension would cost the United Kingdom £1 billion a month.

After further talks Tuesday over an informal lunch of sandwiches and sausage rolls, the two sides said they would resume their discussions after Wednesday's European Union summit.

The Kantar poll of 1,172 people found that 51% of Britons would like a referendum to be held on the deal once negotiations between the Government and the European Union have come to an end.

Who backs no-deal and who supports a softer Brexit?

Earlier, over a working lunch, Mrs May and Mrs Merkel had agreed on the importance of an "orderly withdrawal" from the EU, Downing Street said.

May is hoping the extra time, if granted, will enable her to finally get a divorce deal through parliament.

"The length of the extension must be linked to the goal - what it's for - and that depends on what Mrs May will say to European leaders tomorrow", he said, after meeting EU ministers in Luxembourg.

The Prime Minister, however, remains under intense pressure from Conservative MPs - already angry at the failure to leave on March 29 as planned - who oppose any further delay.

With Labour support growing slightly, Jeremy Corbyn ill be cheered that his talks with the PM to solve the Brexit deadlock have not done his - or his party's - brand any harm. France was also encouraged by May's outreach last week to Britain's political opposition to find a compromise, and Macron may have been swayed in part by a meeting with the Irish prime minister.
