  • EU summit '4 to 6 weeks' after Brexit trigger: European source

A spokesperson said that May will write a letter to the EU's 27 other members to express her intent to have the negotiations begin swiftly.

Britain has said it wants to agree its divorce and a new relationship with Europe within the two years.

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

The country doesn't know what its future relationship with the bloc will look like - whether businesses will freely be able to trade, students can study overseas or pensioners will be allowed to retire easily in other European Union states. They include putting issues like continuing working together on issues like security at the core of what we are doing.

Despite 52 per cent of Wales voting to leave the EU, Plaid Cymru is rallying against hard-Brexit and is pushing for single market access in the up-coming EU negotiations.

He added that Number 10 now wants negotiations to "start promptly" - once the article is invoked it will be up to the European Union to come back, with an early response expected within 48 hours.

"Everything is ready on this side", commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said.

In its report, Legislating Brexit, the IFG says that with the average Queen's Speech announcing only 20 new bills, the introduction of 15 Brexit bills before the United Kingdom even exits the European Union "will leave very little space for non-Brexit related legislation".

Article 50 forbids any talk on the terms of departure until formal notification of withdrawal is given.

British prime minister Theresa May is due to make a statement to the House of Commons the same day.

The prime minister will meet First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones, as well as local businesses, as she tries to show she is including all areas of Britain in negotiations with the EU.

He will also summon the leaders of the countries for a summit to endorse the final guidelines, expected in early May.

The notification will take the form of a letter addressed to Donald Tusk, President of the European Council. The Prime Minister will give a statement to Parliament as well.

Her aim is to enforce a message of unity in the wake of Scotland demanding a second referendum over its independence from the United Kingdom.

It came as a new think tanks report reveals bills to manage Brexit will consume Parliament entirely from May onwards leaving "very little time for anything else".

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.

"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".

The call would take advantage of polls showing May's Tories well ahead of the opposition Labour Party, which has been beset by internal strife under left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn.
