Brexit reportedly might not begin until late 2019

Britain might not withdraw from the EU until toward the end of 2019 because the UK government ministries that will handle the negotiations are still recruiting staff, the Sunday Times reported without identifying its sources. International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has hired fewer than 100 trade policy experts of the 1,000 he needs, and Brexit minister David Davis has hired less than 100 of 250 staff members he needs to help him with EU negotiations.
