    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is delivering a statement outside Number 10 Downing Street in which he is expected to set out choices facing British lawmakers.

    Earlier in the day, rebel UK MPs have revealed a copy of legislation, which aims to force Prime Minister Boris Johnson to ask for a delay to the country's withdrawal from the EU until 31 January, 2020.
