Theresa May To 'Trigger' Article 50 Next Week

Theresa May will 'trigger' article 50, the formal method used for starting negotiations for Britain to leave the European Union next week on Wednesday (29 March), the prime minister’s spokesman has confirmed.

According to Guardian.com, Brexit secretary, David Davis, confirmed article 50 would be triggered next week, calling the process “the most important negotiation for this country in a generation”.

“The government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the UK and indeed for all of Europe – a new, positive partnership between the UK and our friends and allies in the European Union.” Davis added.

The UK's permanent representative to the European Union, Sir Tim Barrow, notified the EU on Monday morning that a letter should be expected on that date.

Reportedly, during a visit to Wales yesterday, after the date was announced, May said: “I am very clear that I want to ensure we get the best possible deal for the United Kingdom that works for everyone across the United Kingdom and all parts of the UK when we enter these negotiations."
