The British government has accepted, at the European Union’s request, to extend until April 30 the provisional application of the post-Brexit agreement, to give additional time to the European Parliament to ratify the deal.

The provisional application of the post-Brexit agreement started on Jan. 1, after the U.K. left the customs union and single market, and was due to end on Feb. 28.

The European Parliament started examining the 1,250 page document mid-January.
