The Prime Minister officially triggers Article 50 today, starting the process to take the UK out of the European Union.

Stephen Woodford, CEO of the Advertising Association, said:

“As the Government triggers Article 50 today, we welcome the Prime Minister’s pledge to maintain a close relationship with our friends in Europe. Our priority is that UK advertising remains open to the global talent that drives our first class output. Advertising can play a pivotal role in selling the UK to the world as we move into Brexit negotiations and beyond, and we’ll be pushing Government to support that potential in its upcoming industrial strategy.”
