-Agency reports

The Bill to start Brexit by allowing Theresa May to trigger the Article 50 exit clause is just eight lines long.
Ministers have stuck to their vow to make the legislation as short as possible – to try to head off Parliamentary attempts to amend it and shape the Brexit process.

The Bill was published after this week’s Supreme Court ruling that MPs and peers must give their consent to invoking Article 50.
MPs will sit late into the night next week, as Ms May strives to meet her deadline to start withdrawal by the end of March.
