The Brexit bill has been cleared in the Houses of Parliament. The prime minister will now trigger article 50 by the end of March.
Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed today that the UK Government will trigger Article 50 by the end of March – so the UK can leave the European Union. Following the bill being passed over the past 24 hours, May is now free to push the button on withdrawal talks. Yesterday, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that she intended to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence. Nicola Sturgeon’s call for Indyref II had been well highlighted over recent weeks. Its timing might have surprised some investors but its sentiment didn’t, so there has been little reaction from sterling so far. However the pound remains fragile in these uncertain times.
