EU and Britain ‘closing in’ on Brexit deal says Raab

EU and Britain ‘closing in’ on Brexit deal says Raab

No-deal frenzy in the media was also fuel by a "worse case scenario" warning from Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England.

Responding to comments by Ms Anderson criticising the United Kingdom government and the "disastrous impact" the need for worldwide driving permits would have on Northern Ireland, Mr Wilson said the "precautionary measure" being taken regarding driving licences post-March 2019 was a "perfectly sensible" step to take.

Mr Raab said that two mobile operators had agreed to keep free data roaming. The EU directive brought in in June 2017 which capped the prices mobile phone operators could charge each other will no longer apply to the United Kingdom after Brexit.

The retailer's statement did not directly cite Brexit as a factor in its falling profits but said that "cost price inflation from a weaker exchange rate" - which has been attributed to a Brexit-induced slump in the value of the pound - had been a predominant reason for pressure on its margins.

On Thursday the British government published a set of advice notices for Britons on how to prepare for the possibility of a "no-deal" Brexit, and May held a cabinet meeting of her top team of ministers to discuss the government's plans for leaving without an agreement.

British people traveling to Europe may also have to ensure their passport is valid for at least six months when they visit the European Union in the event of no deal, to comply with European Union regulations for third countries.

In addition, it is trying to establish whether European organisations involved in partnering arrangements with the United Kingdom will be affects, and the paper warns that United Kingdom based users of Copernicus data may wish to consider the impact on their operations of losing access to anything that is not available under the open data policy.

The British Secretary for Brexit has verified that - if a No Deal Brexit occurs - the Irish in Britain will still be safe.

The Independent newspaper Friday reported that France has said it could halt flights and Eurostar trains from Britain if there is no agreement when Britain leaves the European Union in March 2019.

The CBI said the notices also showed the extent of disruption consumers can expect if "ideology wins over evidence".

CBI Director General Carolyn Fairbairn said the government's latest planning papers "make clear firms would be hit with a sledgehammer in the event of no-deal".

Mr Russell also raised concerns about driving licences.

And he took a swipe at businesses, such as John Lewis, saying: "I think it's probably rather easy at this moment in time for any business that isn't doing rather well to point to Brexit".
