After talks in Brussels today, officials from Britain and the EU have agreed that formal negotiations under the Article 50 process can now start.

In a joint statement issued today, officials said: “Michel Barnier, the European Commission’s Chief Negotiator and David Davis, Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, agreed today to launch Article 50 negotiations on Monday June 19.”

EU officials have said the talks will be in Brussels.

The news will come as a welcome relief to the British Government, after a dismal election for Theresa May threatened to delay talks.

German chancellor Angela Merkel, French president Emmanuel Macron and EU chiefs Jean-Claude Juncker and Michel Barnier have all expressed their hopes that Brexit talk will start on schedule.
