May: Article 50 to be triggered before end of March next year
Theresa May has said the formal withdrawal process for Britain leaving the European Union will be invoked by the end of March 2017.
Speaking at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham, the prime minister also confirmed plans for a "Great Repeal Bill" to overturn legislation that took Britain into the EU.
However Mrs May came under attack from Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon after she said there is "no opt out from Brexit" and we will "never allow divisive nationalists to undermine the precious union between the four nations of our United Kingdom".
Mrs May also said she will not accept any limits on Britain's ability to control immigration in negotiations to leave the EU.
