he was in whitehall today but was said eu leaders would have to decide uncharacteristically tight—lipped about who he was seeing. whether a delay would be in the interests of the grouping. more forthcoming however any delay will have to be agreed were european politicians. this is the french europe minister. by all 27 eu member states. she's got her coat, but not her cat. we've just spoken to the chancellor, it's called brexit, because, philip hammond. apparently, it meows to death to get out of the door, i think ithink we're i think we're all in the same place, but then stays put on the threshold we want the shortest possible delay, and glares when he finally leaves. get this done, so we can get on with i have to have a certain our lives and get on with building sense of humbour to deal britain's future. what we've got to with brexit at the time being. it is a choice that should be made get from the european union is an by the united kingdom. extension that allows us to get to the deal through parliament and get they have said no to a no—deal and they have said no to a realistic deal. the deal through parliament and get they have to change their mind the legislation to ratify it on one of the two options. through. but the cabinet isn't the clock is ticking and time is running out. agreed, is it? people have different we are really exhausted by these views on how we should do this, of course, but we are all clear we want negotiations and i expect clear to get it done as soon as we and precise proposals possibly can. the speaker looks like of the british government. he's stopping mps from voting, is theresa may told mps that failing to back her deal earlier that right? at the speaker has made would bring uncertainty. the ruling he has made and it's not
for me or anyone else in the house well, that's about the only thing that does seem certain of commons to dispute the chair's in the brexit process. iain watson, bbc news, westminster. decision. but we will now have to make sure we craft our future motion in a moment we'll hear ina way make sure we craft our future motion in a way that meets the requirements from our chief political of his ruling, and i'm sure we will correspondent vicki young be able to do that is. so you're in westminster — first let's go to our europe correspondent saying it's not a problem? i'm not damian grammaticas in brussels. saying it's not a problem? i'm not saying it's not a problem? i'm not saying it's not a problem, but we damian, how likely are eu leaders will live with it. we will bring the to grant an extension, bearing in mind all 27 vote back to parliament as soon as have to agree? we have the numbers, as soon as it is not clear yet absolutely that we're sure that enough of our colleagues have coalesced around the they welcome it is very likely come deal. there's no point bringing it all the assumptions and thinking is they will grant an extension but back until then. we want to do this what everybody is saying here today right. it's more important to do it come all the eu people, donald tusk right. it's more important to do it right down to do it today. has been saying this on a visit, 0ur reality check correspondent michel barnier today, we heard the chris morris is here. germans and the french all saying that they want to see what theresa the government wants an extension for brexit, remind us of the may asked for and that need that letter she is meant to write today oi’ letter she is meant to write today options? it's worse emphasising that or tomorrow, they need to see the length of the extension that she
this is something they can ask for once, the reasons for that, and then but they have to get agreement of they will take their decision but they will take their decision but the eu sank very clearly today that all 27 eu countries. there are two they will weigh that up because there are cost to the eu. he sat options, the first thing she is allowing an extension to delay the going to ask for is a short uk exit comes with added and started extension? it so from the 29th of to period and that, mr bonnier said, march, potentially three months until the end ofjune. what that it would be difficult for the eu, so potentially would do is give a bit it would be difficult for the eu, so it would be difficult for the eu, so it would have to have a counterbalance to that in a strategy of time for, if a meaningful vote and plan what it would need to accept this. we can bring you what was passed potentially slightly before the 29th or after, we would he said now. —— mr barney a. then have time to turn that the council will need to assess what is in the best agreement into legislation. they we re agreement into legislation. they were droll agreements need to be interest of the eu. turned into uk law. a fly in the ointment is that there is a european extending the certainty parliament election being held at without a clear plan would add the end of may, but in terms of the to the economic cost for our businesses, but can also end ofjune deadline, it would incur political cost for the eu. matter really if the uk didn't take pa rt matter really if the uk didn't take part in those, because the new parliament doesn't meet until the it is for the british government 2nd ofjuly. parliament doesn't meet until the 2nd of july. that parliament doesn't meet until the 2nd ofjuly. that is when meps have and parliament to decide very to be sworn in. so they would be quickly what the uk wants to do next. that three month winter, but only if a dealfinally gets that three month winter, but only if a deal finally gets through the house of commons that gets turned
and what mr barnier make clear is into uk law. that's going to be the first thing, we understand, she will that if the uk wants anything more than just that if the uk wants anything more thanjust a that if the uk wants anything more than just a short extension a longer ask for. and in the alternative of a one, they would have to be something much longer extension? the bottom new that would be happening to justify that, so the implication is line, not to scale! we put in the a referendum, a new election, something changing the political date of december 20, not because equation in the uk but the french thatis that they have been pretty tough at date of december 20, not because that is what we know the government some hardline sounds coming out of is asking for, but because that is the end of the current eu budget paris say in extension can't be a period. of the uk was a member after way of deferring a difficult that date, it would have to launch decision, the uk has to make choices into an entirely new financial and so there is a clear majority in discussion about funding for another parliament now for whatever strategy seven discussion about funding for another seve n yea rs discussion about funding for another seven years after 2020. that feels like the maximum the eu might want theresa may wants to pursue because the eu see this is the heart of the to offer. 0ccurs be shorter than problem, no majority has been built that, and is one of the things she and parliament come for any clear path forward and the time has come may ask for is a one—year extension, now to do that they think. vicki, but after six months will be an how would you sum up the government understanding, if a deal is passed, strategy right now? that is the you could leave before that. and what would happen if there was a big?. whether theresa may does have longer extension to the european a plan b, anything other than trying elections this summer? this is a again to get her a deal to get her problem? at legal opinions are
deal through, which so far has been divided, some lawyers say you could very much defeated with huge numbers because if the eu are effectively find a fix, perhaps get current british meps to stay on longer, but dictating the terms of any link the extension, there's going to be a problem and she will have to tell politically it's clear that the other countries say the uk would them what she plans to do. that is have to take part in those not clear, talking to ministers and elections. it would have to be by mpc are, what nobody wants is to april 11 that the uk would have to have this three month delay and end up have this three month delay and end up with the same position we are in legislate on whether or not it is and out with a deadline looming and going to take part in the selection is. so if you have between the 29th parliament still unable to make up of march and april the 11th to try his mind with it is in favour of. on and get the deal through the commons again. after that, on april the monday, regardless of anything that happens in brussels, the government 11th, you will have to decide if has to come forward with the motion those elections are going to be that can be altered by mps come so held, with all the awkward political yet again we could see some attempt ramifications you can imagine. by mps to take control of the chris, many thanks. agenda, to try and finally hold let's go to brussels now and speak these indicative votes so—called to to mairead mcguinness, vice president of the european work out what mps might be able to parliament and an mep for ireland's fine gael party. get around. they have been meeting sedate between the labour leader jeremy corbyn and other opposition thank you forjoining us on bbc party leaders, about whether there's anything they can agree on. most of news. what do you make of the other smaller parties do want
situation that we're in now, the uk another referendum, the question is whether mr corbyn is willing to go down that road and lead their way on government wanting an extension to the brexit process? i suppose, in another referendum, this is the response from plaid cymru today when they came out of that meeting. 2016, we never thought in a 2019 we my disappointment, and this would be in this predicament. i was quite straightforward, suppose when they house of commons this is what we were there rejected twice the withdrawal to discuss, was that that the leader agreement, it seems inevitable there of the opposition really only wanted would have to be some movement to discuss his own proposal around the date of exit, because the and own sort of brexit, house of commons also voted for getting a note deal off the table. i that may be a labour brexit, but we all now know by now that think what's exercising my mind at maybe you want some sort of brexit the moment is that, in law, the but nobody looks at that being any better for our economy, united kingdom will leave on the or being betterfor wales 29th of march and less of the law particularly and that really was what the leader changes, and i'm not sure what is happening in the house of commons to of the opposition wanted to discuss. make that significant change on the labour spokesman said that if there statute books at there. i was also quite taken by the discussions was a note deal that theresa may around a long or short extension and brings forward and i general the question of the european election, and no second referendum, parliament elections. it seems to they are urging these other parties to get together and really try to me, from people i have discussed come together and come up with this with, there will be citizens in the united kingdom who would want to
another alternative kind of brexit come a much closer relationship, i vote in the european parliament think the big unknown here is elections, even if the extension is whether theresa may will be willing short, because they will feel, at to counter that, she had been so the time of the elections, the united kingdom is still a member and far, still talking to the dup in the they want to exercise their rights talks are ongoing, trying to get our owfi talks are ongoing, trying to get our own side onboard behind her own deal as citizens of the european union. rather than reaching out to other soi as citizens of the european union. so i think there are complicated legal questions also from a parties, that might have to change if the eu at the seams are dictating citizens‘ prospective. 0f legal questions also from a citizens‘ prospective. of course, the extension is longer — the terms of this extension. thank and that is not being rolled out — then i think elections to the you. —— as it seems. parliament are inevitable. i know other people are suggesting that the joining me now from our brussels studio is german mep current crop of meps might stay on, gabriele zimmer, part of the european parliament's but i think there would have to be brexit steering group. changes to the european parliament‘s methods of working for that to thank you forjoining us. what do prevail. i‘m not sure... i‘m told you make of a where we are now in this whole brexit process?|j political parties in the uk have been told to prepare for elections. you make of a where we are now in this whole brexit process? i think they are now and a real critical there is another choice, because moment because nobody knows if we here in this committee room, we would have reallocated some of the will get an orderly brexit uk's withdrawal agreement or not. i heard would have reallocated some of the uk‘s seats to other member states, including ireland. we were getting
that theresa may will ask the two additional meps after the may election. the question is, what council tomorrow to have an happens to that redrawing of extension of the brexit bill. but we boundaries in member states? i think don't know what will be the there are complications around justification for it and for us, it parliamentary elections. however, there is one clear issue both for is clear, without a strong justification, why we should extend there is one clear issue both for the united kingdom and european union, who do remain committed to an article 50, i'm not sure the council orderly brexit. if that happens in time, iam orderly brexit. if that happens in time, i am expecting the heads of is able to agree to such a request. state will grant extra time, but if the council doesn't agree to that request, it isn't be fear than that without clarity over how and when the withdrawal agreement will be britain may it leave without a deal? ratified by the house of commons and something the eu is understood to be the uk will then be in a position to very against. i think we have to leave and negotiate a future partnership with us. are a voice there is a great deal on what you say there are. i‘lljust take it clarify, for the eu, and the back to citizens, some citizens in the uk might want to vote in the majority of the members in the european parliament. we are strongly european elections, even if the fighting for an orderly brexit extension is quite short. how can they do that if that is not agreed
by the government? of course, they because we know exactly what that means for citizens and you 0k, eu can‘t, if the elections are not called in the united kingdom, they citizens in the uk but also uk cannot vote. but i am aware some citizens in the uk but also uk citizens in the eu. —— for citizens citizens who want to remain in in the uk. from monday to enter the europe will take a legal challenge, andi europe will take a legal challenge, and i can‘t discount they would have some rights on their site. they day, citizens of other countries and would be making the point that, at for that, we have to do what we can the time of the european elections, to getan the time of the european elections, for that, we have to do what we can the uk remains a full member. these to get an orderly deal that is negotiated between both sides, but are legal complexities, and with all the law, there are experts to give your opinions on either side. i‘ve collea g u es negotiated between both sides, but colleagues from the house of commons, they also have to accept that we are waiting for months to been talking to a lot of citizens who want to remain in the european union, and therefore might make this clear, based on a majority decision legal challenge. if it doesn‘t happen, that there is no legal challenge and the extension is for and from your side, what kind of a that short period, as we get the deal do you want? we are ready to withdrawal agreement ratified, then there is no cause, i suppose, for discuss a lot of things but we can't anyone to look for elections, and we can be clear then that the uk leaves reopen the withdrawal agreement, what we can do now is to open the and would begin discussing the political declaration and i am not future. but because i have been so
many twists to the brexit saga, i sure if it is in the interests of think many of us making predictions the voters of brexit that have now are quite fearful that we‘ve been wrong in the past and maybe wrong in the future. but i‘m also aware that the future. but i‘m also aware that the 29th of march is very close, and also to discuss about participation in the new election of european that‘s why, when i opened my remarks parliament, so the chaos is provoked to you, iam that‘s why, when i opened my remarks to you, i am more interested to be sure that the united kingdom will be able to change its law, i think it‘s and for that, we are asking you possible, by that date, to remove please tell us what do you want and the withdrawal date from legislation thatis please tell us what do you want and that is why we don't know what the in the united kingdom. i‘m not sure combination of the request by if you‘ve had much discussion about theresa may for the counsellors. you that on the programme, but that‘s certainly something that will have say that you want the eu wants an to be done, particularly if the prime minister is writing to donald tusk looking for an extension. thank orderly brexit, but with just ten days to go until the due exit date, you forjoining us. there doesn't appear to be any possibility of getting the deal through parliament, so isn't an extension of really inevitable? to them the eu have to grant her an millions were in the path of cyclone idai in mozambique. extension? it depends on what the the children s rights activist and member of the distinguished group of former heads of state,
house of commons and the british the elders — graca machel — has appealed for urgent government is telling us now. if international humanitarian they are saying we need in extension assistance. mrs machel, a former because we would like to organise a mozambican education minister and nelson mandela‘s widow, has been referendum, to get the confirmation speaking exclusively to the bbc. of the withdrawal agreement, 0k, 0ur correspondent milton nkosi began by asking her what she wants the international community to do. then we need a concrete timeline for it and we have to prove it and then to find a way. if the government is a, the withdrawal agreement on the i asked the united nations to send a table once more and people want to specialised team to do the assessment. we need to know the open it, a political declaration and for the agreement, we need a magnitude, the depth, the extension, technical extension, 0k, we can say the complexity of this tragedy. till the start of the election, we which we don‘t have. seconds, there are ready to extend it but what we need is to know why you need, the are three countries involved, not just mozambique — it is so bubbly and malawi. so we british voters and parliament and need the united nations to look at government, why you need the the three countries —

and to others, i implore you, speak but that must be done the name of those who were lost, without harming wildlife. rather than the name of the man we can‘t duck these who took them. problems, the agency says. the prime minister said the role of social media in the attacks must also be questioned. let‘s discuss this with nicci russell, it took facebook nearly half an hour managing director of waterwise, to realise the massacre was being live streamed on its site. an ngo focused on encouraging lower and more efficient in christchurch, the bodies of some of the victims are now finally water consumption. being returned to their families. thank you forjoining us. you‘re behind that screen they are now preparing the ground pleased with the fact that sirjames for the funerals of the 50 people is highlighting this issue. what can killed in last friday's attack. it is a huge and complicated task. people watching two to minimise first all the bodies have to be water use? we are pleased he is identified and then they have to be putting some oxygen on this subject, washed in a traditional because it is a big issue. the muslim ritual. simple things we can do, knocking a and in new zealand they simply don't have enough people minute off our shower time, choosing who know how to do that. a song that lasts for four minutes — volunteers are being flown in from muslim countries around the world to help. emergency visas are being issued i use don‘t look back in anger by so relatives of the dead can travel here for the funerals.

the danger isn't over. the rest is being wasted. that's translation: the biggest threat we have now — even bigger than the cyclone extraordinary! it is. a lot of us — is floods. because it is raining more and more. the water levels are rising. don‘t think about water until we don‘t think about water until we as the cyclone swept don‘t have it, what is really through mozambique, a vast area valuable. thank you. of farmland was inundated. the maize crop was ready for harvest and much has now been lost. that could mean there will be food time for a look at the weather. shortages for the rest of the year. here‘s matt taylor. the situation in mozambique is catastrophic. the losses are tremendous. good evening, a sign of spring on the way in the next few days. what the human toll... it is difficult to measure we will see for the next 2041 was as the scale of the disaster. high to the southwest building in zimbabwe, too, major river crossings have been swept away. towards the uk, and it will be moving aid through this region is a serious challenge, dragging them towards the with so much of the road mid—atlantic. dragging them towards the mid—atla ntic. we dragging them towards the mid—atlantic. we have temperatures network now impassable. widely into the teens tomorrow, and some, as you can see, getting around some food has been getting through, but supplies are quickly exhausted, 17 degrees around the moray firth. such is the scale of the demand. those washed out of their homes are moving to higher ground, with guys like this, fairly cloudy, hoping for food and shelter.

helped to push up wages back to the eu to ask in construction by 4.5%. for brexit to be delayed. and while, elsewhere in the economy, skill shortages aren't as acute, she‘s likely to ask for a short postponement until the end ofjune — employers who want to attract and keep staff have to offer but with the option inflation—beating pay. of a longer delay. the eu‘s negotiator pay is now rising faster than prices sounds unimpressed. and the gap between the two is now wider than it's been for more translation: both short and long? than two years. well, it‘s either one at the same time, unemployment has dropped to just or the other, isn‘t it? but the real question is, 3.9% of the workforce — what is the real purpose of it? lower than it's been in 44 years. and between november and january, the prime minister will try to get agreement from eu the number in work hit a fresh high, leaders on thursday. with tens of thousands of women as the law stands now, there are ten and older people days until we leave the eu — joining the workforce. with or without a deal. also tonight... the obvious question is how, when the economy has been slowing the cyclone in western africa — down, it's been producing morejobs the un says it could be the worst than expected and there are more weather disaster to hit people in work than there have the southern hemisphere. been in nearly 50 years. as—salaam alaikum. part of the answer is that peace be upon you. although there are more of us and peace be upon all of us. in work, we are each producing a little bit less than before. to a company nervous about the future, taking after 50 people were killed at mosques last friday, on new people is less risky than investing large sums in technology to make each worker more productive. it could be that brexit uncertainty
is having less effect on the labour market than other areas of the economy, since it is less costly to reverse hiring decisions than it is to reverse spending on new equipment that may not be later needed. equally, though, it could be that brexit uncertainty has yet to have its full impact on the labour market, so the labour market figures might not be quite so buoyant in the coming months. while a tightjob market has driven up pay, the average pay packet still buys less than it did in 2007. for companies to sustain inflation—beating pay, productivity has to improve and that in turn requires the confidence for companies to invest more — a confidence which has recently been lacking. the queen has been accompanied by the duchess of cambridge on a visit to king's college london. the two opened an education and learning facility on the campus and were given a tour of the facilities, viewing a demonstration of robotic surgery. the queen who is patron of king's college also met students, staff and alumni.
