Brexit: UK-EU freedom of movement 'to end in March 2019'- BBC News

new immigration system will be in place by March 2019 when the free movement of people between the EU and the UK ends, a minister has said. Immigration Minister Brandon Lewis was speaking as the government commissioned a "detailed assessment" of the costs and benefits of EU migrants. That report is expected in September 2018, six months before Brexit. Home Secretary Amber Rudd earlier reassured firms there would be no "cliff edge" on immigration. Writing in the Financial Times she said the UK would continue to attract "the brightest and the best" migrants from around the world - with the newspaper suggesting a work permit system for Europeans was being considered. The CBI said businesses "urgently" needed to know what EU migration would look like, both in any "transitional" period after March 2019 and beyond. Ministers have also promised an "extensive" consultation to listen to the views of businesses, unions and universities. Please subscribe HERE World In Pictures Big Hitters Just Good News

Michel Barnier Dismantles UK’s Brexit White Paper

"The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator on Friday posed a series of questions about Theresa May’s Brexit white paper that all but killed her proposal for a future relationship based on a free-trade area for goods and a new customs agreement. As expected, Michel Barnier never said “no” outright and he praised the white paper for providing a basis for continued discussions toward a withdrawal treaty. But he also insisted that the future relationship would be defined by EU red lines that are clearly incompatible with May’s proposal. Developing the white paper came at considerable cost to May, including the resignation of her own chief negotiator, David Davis, and her foreign secretary, Boris Johnson. Fierce debate continues to swirl in London over the U.K.’s negotiating posture, and Barnier seized on that to suggest the U.K. is still on solid ground. “As you know this white paper is the result of a very intense internal debate in the United Kingdom, a debate that was necessary, and I think we have all seen that this debate in the U.K. is not over yet,” Barnier said at a news conference after briefing EU27 ministers on the status of the talks during a meeting of the General Affairs Council. Barnier went to great lengths to avoid saying that the white paper is a nonstarter — a position that EU officials and diplomats have been reluctant to voice aloud for fear of creating further chaos in Britain or even helping topple May’s government. But Barnier’s reiteration of the EU’s commitment to the single market, and the indivisibility of its four freedoms — notably the freedom of movement for workers — effectively rejects the core elements of May’s plan."
