The seminar is run in accordance with the Chatham House Rule

On February 15th, it will be exactly 6 weeks until the date originally given for the conclusion of the Article 50 process. Whether January’s Parliamentary debate and vote (?), will bring greater clarity on how the conclusion will be achieved is a moot question. This seminar will consider the implications of the current stage of the Brexit and prospects of a resolution for Stafford and the wider region.
