LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May has outlined plans to set the UK’s departure date and time from the EU in law, in a column in Friday’s Daily Telegraph.

May warned she will not “tolerate” any attempt to block Brexit and said the EU Withdrawal Bill would be amended to formally commit to Brexit at 23:00 GMT on Friday March 29, 2019.

“It will be there in black and white on the front page of this historic piece of legislation: the United Kingdom will be leaving the EU on March 29, 2019 at 11pm GMT,” May wrote.

Meanwhile, EU Brexit chief Michel Barnier on Friday handed Britain a two-week ultimatum to make concessions on a divorce agreement if it wants to unlock the next phase of talks in December.
