UK to Set Brexit Day into Law

Britain’s government said on Thursday it would use legislation to fix the time and date of the country’s European Union exit, addressing concerns of Brexiteers who fear slow negotiations and opposition to the divorce could cause delays.The government said it was proposing a change to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill currently making its way through parliament to set the exit for 2300 GMT on March 29, 2019.“We’ve listened to members of the public and Parliament and have made this change to remove any confusion or concern about what ‘exit day’ means,” Brexit minister David Davis said in a statement.
