TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
London stocks outperformed most of their European peers on Thursday, as sterling stumbled over continued confusion and doubts over the Brexit process.
Commons speaker John Bercow allowed the vote to go ahead as he said it was substantially different from the two meaningful votes as it will not cover the political declaration part of May’s deal.
The government said the vote was being held as it was the last day that would allow the UK to exit the European Union on 22 May under the extension approved by the EU council last week and therefore avoiding a longer extension and elections for the EU parliament.
