No-deal Brexit would hit holidaymakers as credit card fees increase

A group that represents United Kingdom hospitals and ambulance services has said that its members may run out of drugs if Britain leaves the European Union without an agreement on future relations.

Products which have already come to the market through the EMA licensing route will automatically be granted United Kingdom market authorisation on March 29 in the event of a no-deal, according to the technical paper.

"As a result of the significant progress made in negotiations, we remain confident we will agree a mutually advantageous deal with the EU".

With less than eight months to go until March 29 when it leaves the bloc, Britain has yet to reach a divorce agreement with the EU.

The government has maintained throughout the negotiation process that it is preparing for all possible outcomes.

The opposition Labour party's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said the talks with the European Union were "going badly" and the publication of the documents on how to prepare for a no deal is a sign the government is "moving into panic mode".

Mr Raab also laid the blame for a no deal outcome at the door of the EU.

In Britain, there is a growing sense of Brexit deja vu.

All of the Brexit scenarios depend on three factors, according to the IfG - the prime minister concludes a withdrawal agreement with the remaining European Union member states (deal) or not (no deal); Parliament accepts the agreement (yes) or rejects it (no); and Parliament then asks the government to renegotiate, or accepts a no deal. May can deliver on Brexit, and campaigners are gearing up for a fight over whether the country should hold another referendum.

Director general Adam Marshall said: "Our test for the government's "no-deal" notices is straightforward".

The ban prevents businesses from charging customers for paying by the likes of PayPal or debit or credit cards, which Treasury earlier this year characterised as "rip-off fees".

Leaked documents obtained by The Sun reveal that pensioners who have contributed to schemes in Europe could risk losing their access to their pension funds if they are paid into a United Kingdom bank account.

Conservative Peter Bone, the Brexit-backing MP for Wellingborough, said he did not expect the Government to shift from seeking reciprocal arrangements for Britons living in the EU.

The first minister added: "It is hugely frustrating, because if the United Kingdom government had adopted the blueprint to negotiations we set out over 18 months ago, they could have made substantial progress on the future partnership with the EU".

Nearly every section had a small explanation at the end highlighting "the very significant challenges that the lack of a UK-EU legal agreement would pose in this unique and highly sensitive context".

Business groups and companies welcomed the details and said more was needed.

"By now, few can be in any doubt that "no deal" would wreak havoc on economies across Europe".

"At the same time, naturally, we've got to consider the alternative possibility". Julian Dunkerton has even donated€1.1m to the group. It has the backing of Nigel Farage, the former leader of the UK Independence Party who has promised to campaign across the country this fall for a hard Brexit and against Ms.

And Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned that without a change of approach there is a "very real risk of a Brexit no deal by accident".
