But Johnson said he will continue to attend meetings in which the UK's vital interests are at stake, such as those about security, sovereignty and global relations.

Ending free movement without transitional arrangements would undoubtedly have a severe economic impact as businesses would have very little time or capacity to prepare for such a fundamental change to our labour market.

Johnson has said he favours a skills-based immigration system post-Brexit, but Downing Street is yet to unveil full details.

"Details of other changes immediately on October 31 for a new immigration system are now being developed", the spokeswoman said.

The UK is exempting Irish citizens from the provision, which is governed by a bilateral regime known as The Common Travel Area that predates their respective membership of the EU.

The home secretary has been clear in her intention to take back control of our borders and end free movement after 31 October, a UK Home Office spokesperson said. So far, however, only about one million have acquired such status.

"It hollows out the Prime Minister's unequivocal guarantee to European Union citizens he has given only three weeks ago".

Japan's top diplomat has told his Chinese counterpart that Japan is "deeply concerned" about the continuing protests in Hong Kong. Early on Tuesday, Lam said, "All my principal officials and I are committed to listening to what the people have to tell us".

The question now is how immigration officers will distinguish between EU citizens with EU Settled and pre-Settled status, come October. This was borne partly of necessity since ports and border services would struggle logistically to change their operations from day one of a no-deal.

"I want a deal".

The plan has gotten a mixed reception in the United Kingdom, with some negative reactions in newspaper comments sections, according to the Associated Press, but Toekook said "a lot of Brits understand the tongue-and-cheek humour behind it all and they're pretty positive".

Josh Hardie, CBI deputy director-general, said: "Businesses and workers know the immigration system is changing".

"Now is the time for Government to reduce uncertainty, not add to it unnecessarily and hinder no-deal preparations". Firms will need at least two years to adapt to any new immigration system. "Over 2m people will be in legal limbo, with no rights whatsoever on paper".

The move is a departure from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May, who had said the government would end free movement "as soon as possible" if the UK left the European Union without a withdrawal deal, suggesting the rules could be phased out.
