EU's Barnier: No big progress on Brexit since March

EU's Barnier: No big progress on Brexit since March

"The government's Brexit strategy is in complete and utter deadlock", said Labour's Brexit policy chief Keir Starmer in a statement.

The lack of decision has also spurred calls for Britain to stay in the, or a, customs union with the bloc, a move its supporters say could prevent the return of a new, hard border with EU member Ireland that could fuel sectarian violence.

"I agree with him [Barnier] there will be no withdrawal treaty if there isn't a backstop dealing with the Irish Border in that treaty", Mr Coveney said.

According to Zakharieva, "substantive progress" needs to be achieved on Ireland, governance, and all remaining separation issues by next month.

The European Union urged the United Kingdom to accelerate the Brexit - the exit from the EU if London is going to have time to complete the main part of this process this autumn.

The EU has set October as the final deadline for a deal to be finalised.

Ireland and the Commission have been demonstrating a new willingness to explore what is reported to be the British prime minister's preferred option, a customs partnership, of which they are sceptical. The UK decided unilaterally and autonomously to withdraw from the EU.

"I wish above anything that we get a concrete proposal".

By getting us "there", he made clear, he meant to the "same outcome" as that envisaged in the backstop agreement, if by different means.

"I think the concept of a shared customs space is something that we would like to see some new thinking on from the British side", he said before holding Brexit talks with other European Union ministers in Brussels.

Executives in the City of London, home to global foreign exchange, bonds and fund management operations, and more banks than any other financial center, believe that a crackdown on immigration post Brexit will hamper their ability to find staff with the right skills, it added. "We have only had first exploratory discussions", he said.

"We need now to be making substantial progress, but that is not happening".
