The imminent referendum on 23 June will decide whether the UK will remain in or leave the European Union.

On Thursday 26 May we enter a period called purdah, a pre-election period (or in this case a pre-referendum period) where government departments, agencies or non-departmental government bodies like the Hartree Centre pause external communications activities.

There will, therefore, be a slight ‘pause in transmission’ from the Hartree Centre for the EU referendum. Communications will resume on Friday 24 June.​
