          Brexit delayed following UK Government request

          March 2019

          Following a written request from Prime Minister Theresa May, European Union leaders agreed on Friday 22nd March to a very short delay to the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union. Although the new timetable is shorter than the Article 50 extension Prime Minister Theresa May originally sought, she hopes it will be sufficient to enable her Government to win Parliamentary support for the Withdrawal Agreement she has negotiated with the European Union.

          On 12 March, the House of Commons rejected Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement and, subsequently voted against a no-deal Brexit and in favour of seeking for an extension of Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union ("TEU"). Although Members of Parliament ("MP"s) expressed a clear preference for excluding a no-deal scenario, for the moment it is still uncertain whether any deal between the United Kingdom (the "UK") and the European Union (the "EU") will be reached before exit date. Key State aid exemptions extended by two years.

          The European Court of Justice has ruled in the Wightman case C-621/18 that the UK may unilaterally withdraw the Article 50 notice to leave the EU (originally served to the EU on 29 March 2017) by giving notice in writing. In such circumstances the Brexit process would come to an end and the UK would continue as an EU Member State on unchanged terms.
