Article 50: Theresa May to trigger Brexit process next week
March 20th 2017
Prime Minister Theresa May is to officially notify the European Union next Wednesday that the UK is leaving. Downing Street said she would write a letter to the European Council, adding that it hoped negotiations on the terms of exit and future relations could then begin as quickly as possible. An EU spokesman said it was "ready and waiting" for the letter. Mrs May's spokesman also rejected reports an early election may be held, saying: "It's not going to happen." Under the Article 50 process, talks on the terms of exit and future relations are not allowed until the UK formally tells the EU it is leaving. If all goes according to the two year negotiations allowed for in the official timetable, Brexit should happen in March 2019.Speaking in Swansea on Monday, during the first of a series of visits around the UK before she triggers Article 50, Mrs May said she was intent on "delivering on Brexit and getting the right deal". Last year's referendum result, she added, "was not just about leaving the EU" but was a vote for a "change in the way the country works". "Part of that is building a strong economy and ensuring that the benefits of economic growth and prosperity are felt across every part of the UK."
