Brexit process set for March 29

|By:, SA News Editor

Theresa May will write to the European Union next Wednesday to announce Britain's withdrawal from the bloc.

Talks on the terms of the departure and future relations are not allowed under the Article 50 process until the U.K. formally tells the EU it's leaving.

If all goes according to the two year negotiations set out in the official timetable, Brexit should happen in March 2019.
