United Kingdom parliament clears the way for Brexit talks

United Kingdom parliament clears the way for Brexit talks

Once the bill receives royal assent - a formality that should be accomplished within hours - May will be free to invoke Article 50 of the EU's key treaty, triggering two years of exit negotiations, by her self-imposed deadline of March 31.

It would also enable EU leaders to plan a summit for April 6 at which they would sign off on negotiating guidelines for the European Commission.

But beyond saying she will begin the formal process later this month, May has yet to answer the question of exactly when, and end nine months of guesswork as to how her government will approach the uncharted territory of leaving the EU. On Sunday, the House of Commons' Foreign Affairs Select Committee accused the government of "dereliction of duty" for failing to prepare for such an outcome.

The referendum also brought the resignation of former Prime Minister David Cameron, who during a re-election campaign had promised to hold the vote.

But she can't do it until Parliament approves a bill authorizing the government to start the divorce process.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 8.02 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,365.45. "Value exists elsewhere in the world". Bond market interest rates are moving up along with these expectations, pushing bond prices down.

Theresa May's EU (Notification of Withdrawal) bill is to return to the House of Commons on Monday with two amendments.

Sturgeon said she wanted the referendum to take place between late 2018 and early 2019, before Brexit negotiations are completed.

That would still leave May with time to trigger Article 50 on Tuesday, but any delays could make it Wednesday.

The overwhelming likelihood, reports the BBC, is that the bill will become law and Theresa May will be able to trigger Article 50. "People all over Europe can see how risky it is to take the European Union into question", he said.

Alexander Stubb, the former Prime Minister of Finland has warned that Britain's negotiating hand is weak, before claiming the United Kingdom will not have to immediately pay a Brexit divorce bill.

Biren Singh was elected the legislature party leader following a four-hour meeting of newly elected BJP members here this evening. Moreover, the party could have protested before the state governor and convince her by presenting the list of supporters.

Sturgeon said it was for Scots to decide whether they followed the rest of the United Kingdom or forged their own path.

The result came as Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced she meant to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence at a time when Brexit negotiations were expected to be reaching a conclusion.

Mr Davis argued today that if EU leaders knew that British politicians could reject a final deal and stay in the Union - they could give us a bad deal.

It had been widely expected she would announce the process was beginning on Tuesday, but her spokesperson has now suggested the announcement will be made at "the end of March".

It is still unclear today whether Britain can annul the Brexit process before the deadline if it changes its mind; and whether the final deal, as well as extension of talks or a transitional accord, also has to be approved by all of the parliaments in the European Union states. But Davis insisted he believed it was not remotely likely that there would be a breakdown between both sides.
