Britain and EU 'closing in' on a Brexit agreement, Raab says

  • Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond arrives in Downing Street

We envisage quite a rush on post offices next year for the £5.50 IDPs if no deal is reached.

"As a responsible government we need to plan for every eventuality".

When it comes to passports the government is expected to warn that after Brexit unless a deal is thrashed out then European Union countries may not allow British citizens to enter their countries if they have less than six months left on their passport before it expires.

Mr Raab had an "extended" phone call on Friday with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier to review progress in the Brexit talks.

But Moody's Investor Service said the probability of a "no-deal" had risen and such a scenario would damage the economy, especially the automotive, aerospace, airline and chemical sectors.

The EU directive which capped the prices mobile phone operators could charge each other will no longer apply to the United Kingdom after Brexit.

The latest batch of no-deal position papers from the government say British motorists may have to apply for International Driving Permits if they head to Europe after March 29 when Britain leaves the EU.

Manafort expected to plead guilty before new trial
Court papers indicated that he could have faced between 15 and 19 1/2 years in prison under federal guidelines. Manafort, 69, was convicted last month of bank and tax fraud after a trial in Alexandria, Virginia.

And the government is proposing to cap any data charges at £45 a month.

At a ministerial meeting to discuss the preparations, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney warned that British house prices would fall by 35 percent over three years in the event of a chaotic no-deal Brexit, The Times newspaper reported. "Mark Carney should stop going around spreading gloom and despondency and concentrate on the benefits of Brexit". May has said next week's informal European Union summit will be a "staging post" in the negotiations that will allow the bloc's leaders to discuss her Brexit plans for the first time.

The British government will later Thursday publish 28 "technical notices" covering issues as varied as mobile phone roaming charges and upholding environmental standards.

The UK would "recognise our strict legal obligations" but that the amount paid would be "significantly, substantially lower" than the £39bn agreed with the EU.

Meanwhile, focus switched to the as yet unresolved situation of the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

It added: "This means that UK-based businesses, academics and researchers will be unable to bid for future EU Global Navigation Satellite System contracts and may face difficulty carrying out and completing existing contracts".
