No Article 50 Trigger until UK Wide Approach is Agreed

UK EUPrime Minister Theresa May has said that the Government will not trigger Article 50, the formal trigger of divorce talks with the European Union, until a “UK approach” has been agreed.

Mrs May, speaking after a meeting with Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who has been looking at ways to keep Scotland in the bloc, said she wanted to get the best deal for the whole country.

The Prime Minister said, “I’m willing to listen to options and I’ve been very clear with the first minister today that I want the Scottish government to be fully engaged in our discussions.

“I have already said that I won’t be triggering Article 50 until I think that we have a UK approach and objectives for negotiations, I think it is important that we establish that before we trigger Article 50.”
