The British government will formally notify the EU that the UK is leaving the union on Wednesday next week.

The UK government has set the date of 29 March to invoke Article 50 of the European treaty, which will mark the start of its separation process from the EU. British permanent representative to the EU Tim Barrow informed European Council President Donald Tusk of the chosen date on Monday morning.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is in Wales this Wednesday, where she said she and Secretary of State for Exiting the EU David Davis would visit all parts of the UK including Northern Ireland before entering Brexit talks, “listening to people from right across the nation as we prepare to leave the EU as one United Kingdom”.

The two-year negotiation process will define the future relation between the UK and the EU, including rules surrounding trade and the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. Secretary Davis said that the UK’s aim was “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”.
