TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks finished sharply lower on Monday even as the pound slid on news that Theresa May has called off this week’s parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal until she has been able to speak with her counterparts in the European Union.
Speaking in the House of Commons, the Prime Minister told MPs: “Until those discussions have properly started, it’s impossible to say how long [they will take].”
“We need to enter into those discussions and until we have done that it’s not possible to give a date.”
Thursday’s European Council meeting offered a possible window for May to discuss matters with EU leaders, analysts at Oxford Economics wrote.
Over on the second-tier index the selling pressure was even more intense, with the stockmarket gauge down by 1.97% or 351.80 points to 17,492.31
