On November 22, the Department for Exiting the EU published a set of frequently asked questions and answers (Q&A) on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU (or Brexit). The Q&A cover topics including the referendum, exiting the EU, migration, trade and the EU single market, EU funding for UK projects, the Great Repeal Bill and EU legislation, and devolution questions in respect of the Scottish Government, Welsh Assembly and Northern Ireland Executive.

The Q&A: 1) confirm that the UK government’s intention is to trigger Article 50 (to commence the UK’s formal withdrawal process) no later than March 2017; 2) reiterate that in the view of the UK government, triggering Article 50 is a prerogative power; and 3) that the UK government will not pursue an existing model (such as the Norwegian or Swiss models) for the future relationship between the UK and the EU.

The Q&A is available here.
