May says Brexit plan delivers 'people's vote'

May says Brexit plan delivers 'people's vote'

"I don't believe it was possible to move the Brexit negotiations forward without having that moment when the majority of the conservative party were willing to face down the hard-line Brexiteers", said Mr Coveney.

Should access be withdrawn for some reason, the white paper says there should be a "structured withdrawal process including a period of consultation", with clear timelines and notice periods that are "appropriate for the scale of the change before it takes effect".

The proposals have also triggered the resignations of Dominic Raab's predecessor as Brexit secretary, David Davis, and ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson, from the cabinet.

"The Chequers there because it delivers on the vote that people gave", May told reporters upon arrival at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, referring to a deal brokered at the prime minister's country residence last week.

The free movement of people between the United Kingdom and the Continent will end. The UK is proposing a "joint institutional framework" to provide for the consistent interpretation and application of UK-EU arrangements.

For the prime minister and the government it's an important step in spelling out the reality of leaving - more political freedom does, this paper suggests, come at a cost.

The white paper says free movement will end when the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

Both of these elements will be subject to the upcoming negotiation.

Thai boys were passed 'sleeping' through cave, says rescue diver
The last of the group was finally extracted on Tuesday after a painstaking and risky global rescue mission led by Thai Navy SEALs. But he had denied they were knocked out for an operation the chief of the rescue had dubbed "mission impossible".

They are also anxious that such close alignment to European Union rules will make trade deals with other countries impossible and that the fiendishly complicated scheme will take years to implement, effectively tying the United Kingdom into an endless transition period with the EU.

The government's aim is to preserve free trade in that part of the economy and avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland.

Hardline Brexiteers have attempted to force the Prime Minister to release a rival draft of the white paper, which was previously drawn up by Mr Davis before last week's Chequers meeting. "It would take the United Kingdom out of the single market and the customs union".

Officially, the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the United Kingdom would come to an end.

One would require a new law to join a new customs union, and another would demand the EU collect any tariffs set by Britain on UK-bound goods coming in from outside.

The paper confirms that the United Kingdom will not seek "mutual recognition" in the services sector, which makes up the vast majority of the economy.

The four amendments to the customs bill were put down a day before Thursday's publication of a white paper policy document giving details of the prime minister's plans.
