Key UK Brexit bill becomes law as car industry warns of harm

Brexit Ireland GETTYBrexit news Theresa May has been unable to propose a workable Irish border solution

The piece of law took the United Kingdom into the EU and meant that, for the first time, European law became superior to laws passed in the British Parliament.

An agreement must be reached in time to be ratified by United Kingdom and European Union parliaments before the March 29 2019 end date, or risk the "cliff edge" no deal scenario feared by business.

Eurosceptics celebrated the passing of the Bill through parliament last week as proof that, despite all the continuing uncertainty over the negotiations with Brussels, Britain was leaving the EU.

Alongside this programme of secondary legislation, Departments are delivering on a further package of Bills which will deliver the more significant policy changes needed as a result of our exit from the EU. Last month, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, warned that Britain must face "consequences" for leaving the European Union, an antagonistic stance that doesn't sit well with business leaders.

Investment in the British motor industry has fallen by almost a half in a year, with uncertainty over Brexit being blamed.

Public announcements of fresh investments in new plants, machinery, tooling, equipment and model development fell to 347.3 million pounds ($461.1 million, €395.5 million) between January and June 21, down from £647.4 million in the first half of 2017.

Heather Locklear Hospitalized After 911 'Overdose' Call
When she was released, Locklear sources told People that she would be returning to the hospital to get the help she needs. Locklear was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold last week after allegedly choking her mom and attacking her dad.

"There is no credible "plan B" for frictionless customs arrangements, nor is it realistic to expect that new trade deals can be agreed with the rest of the world that will replicate the enormous value of trade with the EU".

Dr Robertson said he would "hate" it if the United Kingdom was "knocked off course because of some changes in the political environment", but added: "Knocking off course does not mean a complete U-turn".

She described the legislation as "a major building block for the UK's bright future outside of the European Union".

May is caught between the two factions.

The survey finds that European businesses support a post-Brexit deal that keeps trade relations as close as possible to the existing conditions, and three quarters say the EU should also make concessions to the U.K.to secure a functioning trading relationship.
