TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

London stocks were in the green at the end of the week, amid signs of progress in Sino-US trade talks, and a drop in the pound as Westminster haggled with Brussels over the length of any extension to Article 50.

Theresa May, meanwhile, wrote requesting a delay of up to 30 June, saying that if cross-party negotiations did not yield “a single unified approach” from Parliament, then MPs would be asked to vote on a menu of possible options for Brexit, which the government “stands ready to stand by”.

Tusk told EU officials Britain could have an option to leave once the withdrawal agreement is ratified by parliament and was expected to outline his idea at a leaders’ summit in Brussels next Wednesday. He was reported to have described the plan as “the only reasonable way out” of the current impasse.
