LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will not begin formal divorce talks on leaving the European Union before the end of the year, a government spokeswoman said on Friday.
Bloomberg cited unidentified officials as saying that May is sympathetic to the case for acting by April at the latest.
"We don't recognize this briefing," a Downing Street spokeswoman said when asked about the report.
"The government's position has not changed. Article 50 will not be invoked before the end of the year," the spokeswoman said.
