EU summit on Brexit set for April 29

Press Association logoPress Association 21/03/2017

European Union leaders will meet on April 29 to collectively agree a Brexit negotiating position ahead of withdrawal talks with Britain, European Council president Donald Tusk has announced.

The timing of the summit will give leaders of the EU's 27 other member states time to consider Tusk's response to Theresa May triggering Article 50 on March 29, which he has promised within 48 hours.

The EU27 will then come together at the extraordinary summit in April to agree their position and give European Commission chief negotiator Michel Barnier a mandate for exit negotiations.
