It means the PM has an extra gathering of leaders of the 27 member states in which to convince them to support her proposal.

It comes shortly before an October meeting in Brussels, by which time it has been hoped a Brexit deal will have been hammered out.

The good news follows Mrs May being dealt a blow on Thursday, when EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier rejected the customs proposals that form a key plank of her White Paper.
