U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said Wednesday that the U.K. is "significantly closer" to delivering on the Brexit vote, BBC News reports. After reaching a draft agreement with the European Commission, May has spent much of Wednesday meeting with her cabinet. If they sign off on the potential deal, the European Commission is expected to publish the 500-page draft withdrawal agreement. The agreement reportedly includes commitments on citizens' rights, a proposed 21-month transition period after March 29, 2019, and details on a 39 billion GBP "divorce bill." Ambassadors from the remaining 27 EU member states may form an emergency summit to possibly sign off on the agreement later this month. The news comes after the commission released a contingency plan for a no-deal Brexit, which included a section on personal data, stating that "the adoption of an adequacy decision is not part of the Commission's contingency planning."
