BRITAIN’S departure from the EU has been delayed meaning Brexiteers will have to wait until October 31 until our historic exit.
Here are some of key dates in the Brexit process.
Key dates leading up to 2019
On November 25, 2018, EU leaders agreed the UK’s Brexit deal at the Brussels summit.
The agreement on the UK’s withdrawal was considered to be the “best and only deal possible”.
On December 10, 2018, Theresa May scrapped the vote on her Brexit in the Commons as it was due to fall to a heavy defeat.
And on January 15 the Brexit vote failed by 432 votes to 202.
29 March – Brexit Day
- Britain had been due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019.
- However, after UK MPs rejected the withdrawal deal Mrs May had agreed with Brussels – EU leaders eventually agreed to a six-month extension to the exit process until October 31, 2019.
- The UK can leave the EU before this date if a withdrawal agreement is ratified between Britain and Brussels before then.
- The first EU Summit following Britain’s failure to leave on March 29 will start on May 9 in Sibiu, Romania.
