This document sets out the process that would follow a vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union in the referendum on the 23 June 2016, and the prospects for negotiations. The rules for exit are set out in Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. This is the only lawful route available to withdraw from the EU.
Alternative models for the UK’s relationship with the EU after exit will be examined in a separate document.
