Theresa May to trigger article 50 on 29 March

The official plan for Brexit is laid out in an official Government document

Britain's government says it will trigger Article 50, signaling Britain's departure from the European Union, on March 29. They include putting issues like continuing working together on issues like security at the core of what we are doing.

Priti Patel, the UK's worldwide development secretary, said: "What this shows is that we are a government that is very focused". The remaining 27 European Union member states would then have to sign off on that move and formally give a mandate to French politician Michel Barnier to conduct the negotiations on their behalf.

One of key issues is the €50 billion bill the United Kingdom must settle to leave the EU.

"We are on the threshold of the most important negotiation for this country for a generation", Davis said.

British envoy to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow, informed the European Council earlier on Monday of the UK's official decision to invoke the withdrawal mechanism under the Lisbon Treaty.

Mount Etna Eruption Triggers 'Violent Explosion', 10 Injured
Sicily's Mount Etna has been quiet for two years, and this year drew skiers to its slopes, but it began to erupt again last month. A BBC crew and tourists were among those caught up in the drama as people were "pelted with boiling rocks and steam".

For May, it raises the prospect of two divorces, and a second independence referendum would stretch the government at a critical time, leaving her battling to protect the three-centuries-old union with Scotland while trying to reach a Brexit deal.

The developments come as an independent think tank warned today that up to 15 new bills could be needed to deliver Brexit. And we've been clear that where there could be significant change, for example in areas such as customs or immigration, there will be primary legislation.

They would be in addition to the Great Repeal bill, which will end EU legal authority in the country by scrapping the 1972 European Communities Act.

The view appeared to open up a split with David Jones, a minister in the Brexit department, who welcomed the "no exit fee" argument - first put forward in an explosive House of Lords report.

These terms may include a £50bn ($NZ87.5bn) "divorce bill" and Mr Juncker said Brexit could bring the remaining 27 members closer together: "They will all see from the UK's example that leaving the European Union is a bad idea".

Investors Real Estate Trust (IRET) Common Share Dividend Payout Ratio
On the other hand, in the September 2017 quarter the company recorded a net $166.59M revenue with earnings per share of $1.39. The real estate investment trust reported $0.43 EPS for the quarter, missing analysts' consensus estimates of $0.44 by $0.01.

Dr Muscat told parliament that in his recent meeting with Mrs May in London, he emphasised that no new agreement would be better for the United Kingdom than that now in place with Britain as a full member of the union.

The summit will endorse the final guidelines and mandate the EU's negotiator, Michel Barnier from the European Commission.

"Theresa May has repeatedly said that she wants to build a national consensus on Brexit, but it is increasingly clear she has failed to do so".

Brexit minister David Davis has said there would be no sudden drop in numbers, as it would take years to fill low-skilled jobs in hospitality, social care and agriculture now done by immigrants.
