May Promises To Be Robust With EU Over Brexit

But pro-Brexit politicians in Britain have been annoyed by a passage in the EU's proposals saying the bloc can "suspend certain benefits" of single-market membership if Britain breaks the rules.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and finance minister Philip Hammond will meet representatives from major Japanese businesses on Thursday as concerns about Brexit grow among some of the world's biggest foreign investors.

The UK government, which says it is working to secure the best possible deal for the whole of the UK, had argued that releasing the analysis to the public could damage its negotiations with the EU. We've shown we can do that.

Away from the Commons chamber, other Tory Euro-sceptics were appalled by the latest negotiating demands from Brussels.

He said: "It's perfectly clear what we want to do. If this is a way of bullying the Government or the British people, they have misjudged it".

Mr Davis said the talks had been "very constructive" and the next round would focus on the implementation period.

"There's no doubt about it, we are leaving the customs union but we are aiming for a good future for Britain". "If we don't have an acceptable long-term relationship agreed, then we don't need transition".

By comparison, a free trade deal would hit London's growth by just 2%, growing to 3.5% in a no deal scenario, and just 1% if the country stays in the single market.

Concerns about Brexit also remain high among Britons living in the EU - but they now have some hope after a group of five British citizens won a landmark legal ruling that will result in their case being heard in the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

Scottish National Party MP Peter Grant said: "The UK Government's leaked internal Brexit analysis makes for utterly grim reading".

They argue they have European Union rights that must be protected no matter what Britain's future relationship with the Brussels club is.

Meanwhile, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said there is a lot of work happening behind the scenes to ensure the commitments on the Irish border agreed last December are fully reflected in the UK's withdrawal agreement from the EU.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said she had previously "made the point that what it doesn't model is the deal which she is actually seeking".

It found that economic growth in the North East would be 16 per cent lower over the next 15 years if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal and fell back on World Trade Organisation rules.
