May: No freedom of movement from European Union after 2019

Philip Hammond at NATO Summit Wales

THERESA MAY has insisted free movement of people from the European Union will end in March 2019 after chancellor Philip Hammond hinted it could survive until 2022.

"Other elements of the post-Brexit immigration system will be brought forward in due course".

Senior ministers have given conflicting signals over key issues such as whether free movement of people could continue after Brexit, with divisions coming out into the open since the ruling Conservatives lost their parliamentary majority in June.

Hammond has suggested that a two or three year-long transition period would follow Brexit, with most of the European Union rights and obligations continuing in the United Kingdom, mirroring the non-EU arrangements carved out by, for instance, Norway or Switzerland. This means that the transitional period - however long it is - until a post-Brexit deal is agreed could be a hard time.

THERESA MAY has confirmed that unlimited European Union migration WILL end when Britain officially quits the EU.

"A transitional deal could increase the likelihood of a smoother Brexit, which we think over time could supportive of a stronger pound", said MUFG currency economist Lee Hardman, who expects sterling to have recovered to around $1.40 by the second quarter of next year.

Britain will not become a "Singapore-style" tax haven in a bid to compete with European rivals after Brexit, Chancellor Philip Hammond has said.

United States sanctions Venezuelan president, calls him a 'dictator'
Meanwhile, Venezuela's latest violence and political turmoil will probably deepen its economic and humanitarian crisis. Marco Rubio of Florida and John McCain of Arizona were urging Trump to hit Venezuela hard after Sunday's vote.

"I have not been involved in any discussion on that", Fox told the Sunday Times.

Members of May's government have made contradictory pronouncements on immigration policy in recent days, adding to the impression of confusion surrounding Britain's goals for Brexit talks.

The details of any implementation period are to be negotiated but the government is not looking for an "off-the-shelf model", he said, after a Financial Times report that Hammond hoped for such an option.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd is among those emboldened to soften the government's stance.

The Prime Minister's spokesman said: "The Prime Minister's position on an implementation period is very clear and well-known". Number 10 says the plan is as Theresa May set out in her big speech at the start of the year.

He also added: "If there have been discussions on that I have not been party to them".

The comments were markedly different from Hammond's responses in his January interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, which were seen as a thinly veiled threat to use corporate tax as a form of leverage in Brexit negotiations.
