LONDON (AP) - The head of the European Parliament says the European Union will not make further concessions to Britain after the country's attorney general failed to fundamentally alter his legal advice on Prime Minister Theresa May's revised deal.
    
EU Parliament President Antonio Tajani said the problems raised by the attorney general are "an internal problem of the U.K." and would not prompt the EU to reconsider the Brexit deal again.
    
"We are very clear It is impossible to change our position," Tajani said after he heard about the objections.
    
May hoped that concessions she got from the EU late Monday would be enough to prompt Attorney General Geoffrey Cox to alter his advice that the country could end up being tied indefinitely in a customs union with the EU after Brexit.
    
He still hoped U.K. lawmakers would back the withdrawal agreement later.
