Davis says Brexit trade agreement would progress border issue

22 Août 2017

"Small businesses will need time to adapt to any new changes and therefore clear and early communication will be essential once an agreement has been negotiated with the Commission".

That position was borne out in the Government's proposals for European Union citizens' rights after Brexit, which confirmed the ECJ would not offer legal protection for those affected.

The proposal comes as the government readies itself to unleash the hotly anticipated document on the role of European judges in policing citizens' rights and trade.

"While we believe this will likely require a new and unique solution, our paper will examine a number of precedents".

The EU's official negotiating directive states that "sufficient progress" must be made on the first phase of talks - which covers the rights of EU and United Kingdom nationals living overseas and any outstanding financial obligations- before talks can move on to the future of trade.

It separately raised the idea of a "temporary customs union" with the EU after leaving the bloc. The paper makes it clear that "as we leave the EU we will also leave the EU Customs Union". "The simplest way to achieve that is for the United Kingdom to stay in the single market and a customs union until a comprehensive new deal is in force". And it didn't address the issue that is potentially an even bigger future source of border friction than customs: the U.K.'s withdrawal from the single market, the bloc's zone of common regulation.

In effect, what they seem to be saying is that they want a customs union tailor-made for them. The document is clear, though, that the ECJ will no longer have direct control over United Kingdom law after Brexit.

"The EU, when there's the political will, can act very swiftly", Mr Lidington said. The first of these, which could also be published next week, relates to civil and commercial contracts in force before the U.K.'s exit. Mutual recognition of Authorized Economic Operators (AEOs) hopes to enable faster clearance of AEOs' goods at the border and ease pressure on ports and entry points.

Facebook : un brevet autour de lunettes de réalité virtuelle
Le brevet a été déposé par trois membres de la division de recherche avancée à Oculus, qui appartient bien sûr à Facebook. L'un des auteurs du brevet n'est autre que Pasi Saarikko, débauché de chez Microsoft par Oculus en 2015.

"Commentators suggest that in seeking a customs union agreement that will keep things broadly the same for an interim period, the United Kingdom government is attempting to reassure United Kingdom businesses that undertake visible trade with Europe ..."

He says the FTA urges the government to include representatives of the sector, with specialist knowledge, at the negotiating table to help reach the best possible deal for Britain. The U.K. insists it wants to hold trade and divorce talks in tandem.

European nationals will still be able to pass freely without passport checks between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland after the UK's departure from the EU, under new government plans.

In 2014, then-Prime Minister David Cameron proposed plans to allow migrants from Europe to claim tax credits and child benefit and to apply for social housing only after four years of living in the country while prohibiting them from receiving benefits or child tax credit for kids living in other countries.

The recent proposals will be discussed with stakeholders over the summer.

Today's paper is the latest in a series being published this week.

But Downing Street said it remained "confident" of making enough progress on the issues of citizens' rights, the financial settlement and borders for the European Council to give the green light to the second phase of Brexit negotiations when it meets in Brussels in October.

"Any dispute about each other's customs arrangements should be settled by an independent arbitrator, as with any other worldwide agreement, not by an institution which belongs only to one party of the agreement", he added.
