UK PM prepares plan to legally stop Brexit extension -The Telegraph

Sept 8 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has prepared plans to legally stop any Brexit extension, the Daily Telegraph http://bit.ly/2ZP87Yc reported late on Sunday.

Johnson's advisers held a meeting on Sunday to counter the strategy to prevent the British parliament's attempts at enforcing a three-month Brexit extension if no new deal is agreed, the newspaper reported.

A plan under consideration would see Johnson sending a letter alongside the request to extend Article 50 setting out that the government does not want any delay after Oct. 31, according to the report.
