New Brexit delay in no one's interest - French diplomatic source

PARIS, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Another delay in Brexit would be in nobody’s interest, a French diplomatic source said on Saturday, after UK lawmakers backed a proposal to push back a vote on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal until formal ratification legislation passes.

“France will consult with its European partners and cannot take a decision at this stage,” the source said.

“A deal has been negotiated, it is up to the British Parliament to approve it or not, a meaningful vote is necessary,” the source added. (Reporting by Michel Rose, Marine Pennetier; Writing by Matthias Blamont; Editing by Mark Potter)
