22 Sep 2017

September has seen significant developments in the withdrawal negotiations. Most notably is the delay of the fourth round of negotiations, due to have started on Monday 18 September, to Monday 25 September in order that Prime Minister Theresa May could deliver her speech on the UK’s stance on Brexit on Friday 22 September.
