A letter signed by 200 business leaders being delivered to Downing Street today urges the Prime Minister not to waiver on her plan to trigger formal Brexit talks by the end of March without a vote in Parliament.

The letter says: “We are confident that Britain can prosper outside the EU.

“Some of us voted Leave, some Remain. Others represent international businesses with a stake in Britain’s success.

“What we share is a respect for the decision made by a clear majority of the British people to leave the EU and a belief that it is now vital that Article 50 is triggered within the Government’s time frame – no later than March 31, 2017, but preferably sooner – so that the country can get on with leaving the EU and businesses and investors can plan accordingly.

“Create certainty and confidence, trade and jobs will follow.”
