British PM to begin formal EU exit process March 29

Britain will formally begin protocols to leave the European Union on March 29, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday.

The official notification will declare that negotiations should begin as soon as possible, May's spokesman said.

On Monday, Sir Tim Barrow, Britain's EU representative, notified European Council President Donald Tusk to expect a letter invoking Article 50, the parliamentary procedure triggering the departure process, on March 29. Article 50 forbids any talk on the terms of departure until formal notification of withdrawal is given.

It is expected that the 27 other EU member nations will agree to the start date, with an initial response from them with 48 hours, the BBC reported.
