Brexit: PM to trigger Article 50 by end of March

From BBC News - The PM's announcement on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty - which begins the formal negotiation process - means the UK looks set to leave the EU by the summer of 2019. Mrs May also promised a bill to remove the European Communities Act 1972 from the statute book. She said this would make the UK an "independent, sovereign nation".
