UK Brexit minister David Davis in scheduled announcement 24 Jan

The comment refers to the need for a Bill to go through Parliament as per the Supreme Court ruling earlier.

  • legislation will be a straightforward Bill
  • hopes that no one will seek to use the legislation to thwart the will of the people
  • will work closely with colleagues to ensure Article 50 legislation is passed in good time
  • the point of no return on Brexit has passed
  • will trigger Article 50 by end-March

Repeating the end-March mantra as if we needed any reminding of the govt's position.

GBP heads lower again.
