Unions and business demand greater speed in Brexit talks

Carmakers warn ‘there is no Brexit dividend’

The new act ensures that around 20,000 pieces of European Union legislation will now be transferred into British law, in an attempt to ensure a smooth "Brexit". Following the vote, the Bill was set to receive the so-called Royal Assent to gain the status of a law.

It's good news for the pro-Brexit crowd, but May's cabinet is still divided over how to proceed.

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. It will ensure the supremacy of British law on Brexit day March 29, 2019.

This culminated in a series of defeats for the government in the House of Lords - but ministers secured the necessary agreement for the legislation to clear the Commons last week.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said Tuesday that investment in new models, equipment and facilities in the United Kingdom was £347 million ($460 million) in the first half of the year, compared to £647 million ($860 million) in the same period of 2017.

"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".

Apple, Samsung settle seven-year legal battle over design patent infringement
When contacted by AFP for comment, Apple referred to a statement released last month after the jury announced the damages award. Apple alleged Samsung's Nexus Android phones infringed on Apple's patents, trademarks, user interface and style.

Germany's Siemens and Airbus both said last week that a British withdrawal from the European Union without a deal could threaten future investment and even their presence in the country, putting thousands of British jobs at risk.

The trade association is calling for the Government to safeguard jobs in the sector and to end the current uncertainty about the UK's future trading relationship with the European Union post-Brexit.

A spokesperson for the German company confirmed the accuracy of the comments, but said that BMW remained committed to its manufacturing operations in Britain as it works through "a range of possible Brexit outcomes and their potential impact on our business".

May is caught between the two factions.

"Lest anyone is in any doubt, the chances of Britain not leaving the European Union are now zero", International Trade Minister Liam Fox said.
