Britain's government is considering extending the period in late September and early October, during which parliament does not normally sit, until Oct. 14 as part of its push to get Brexit done by Oct. 31, the Guardian newspaper said. A meeting about the plan was due to take place at Queen Elizabeth's Scottish summer residence in Balmoral on Wednesday, the Guardian's political editor, Heather Stewart, said on Twitter.

"Suggestion from more than one source of a Privy Council meeting at Balmoral today, to discuss/agree to extend the conference recess until 14 October," Stewart said. Britain's parliament typically does not sit for around three weeks in late September and early October, when the main political parties hold their annual conferences.
