TALLINN (Reuters) - Britain remains on track to trigger the legal process for leaving the European Union by the end of March, Brexit Secretary David Davis said on Monday, although he would not name a specific date.

“We will complete by March 31 and trigger by March 31. When before then? I am not going to offer a view. I am confident we can meet that date,” Davis told reporters during a trip to Estonia.
