Premier to discuss ‘Brexit’ in UK

Michael Dunkley leaves for the UK this evening to discuss matters with government representatives including Britiain's exit from the European Union.

It will be the first opportunity the Premier has had to meet government officials since the appointment of new Prime Minister Theresa May and her cabinet.

Mr Dunkley will be updating the representatives on Bermuda's stance regarding Brexit.

He is also expected to discuss “matters of importance to Bermuda” such as the driving licence issue in the US state of Massachusetts, immigration and the upcoming Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council meetings being hosted by the UK Government in November.

So far the Premier has meetings scheduled with Baroness Anelay, Minister of State for the Commonwealth, and MP Robin Walker, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State.

The Premier will also meet with former Governor George Fergusson and senior executives at XL Catlin while in London.

Mr Dunkley, who will be accompanied by the Secretary to the Cabinet, Dr Derrick Binns, and Kimberley Durrant, Bermuda's UK representative and director of the London office, has a scheduled interview with The Economist.
