Brexit campaigners seek views in Nailsea

Brexit campaigners seek views in Nailsea

Fox spoke a day after opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said his Labour Party would "seek to negotiate a new, comprehensive UK-EU customs union to ensure there are no tariffs with Europe". "The presentation added that the approach could pose a 'risk for the integrity" of the single market.

"We welcome Andy McDonald's support for an independent and commercially run ports sector, his clear commitment to improving port connectivity, and ambitious plans for maritime industry".

Mr Barnier added that a "dynamic application" of European Union laws in Britain during the adjustment period after Britain leaves in March, 2019, was also a no-go for the bloc.

Jeremy Corbyn is expected to formally unveil Labour's approach to Brexit on Monday, when he is expected to say that life outside the bloc does not necessarily mean the United Kingdom is "doomed" and that the situation is "what we make of it together". British officials stress that the text will reflect only an European Union negotiating gambit in some cases, although other passages will translate into legal terms the agreements reached by both sides two months ago.

Britain must leave the EU customs union to strike new trade deals after Brexit, the country's trade minister said on Tuesday, widening a major fissure within British politics over future trade relations with the bloc.

Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has dismissed concerns that leaving the customs union after Brexit could lead to a hard border by comparing travel between the Republic and Northern Ireland to crossing London boroughs.

British Prime Minister Theresa May immediately branded part of the 120-page document unacceptable and a likely threat to her country's constitutional order.

Just over 60 percent of recent or prospective vehicle buyers have had their decision-making influenced by Britain's exit from the European Union, including some delaying a purchase, according to a survey by Auto Trader.

The West Bromwich East MP continued that Labour has "always said" it wants a customs union, as well as the benefits of the single market in order to protect jobs. They both want to keep standards high.

"You can't suck and blow at once, as they say, we're going to have to come out of the customs union in order to be able to do free trade deals".

British officials are also uneasy about the European Union writing into the draft that London will maintain regulations in Northern Ireland to avoid diverging from European Union rules in the Irish Republic and so avoid a "hard border" that could disrupt the peace.

Turkey has a customs union with the EU, but it doesn't cover trade in services, coal, steel and agricultural products.

But Mr Barnier said: "During the transition, clearly, the free movement of persons must be maintained, which means that citizens who arrive before and during the transition period should be treated equitably and in the same manner".

UK International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said 90 per cent of global growth in the next 10 to 15 years will be outside Europe, and remaining inside the tariff-free European Union trade zone "would limit our ability to reach new trade agreements with the world's fastest-growing economies".
