Hard Irish Border Could 'Encourage Smuggling Instead Of Terrorism', Says David Trimble

Parliament votes for UK to stay in EMA

According to an explanatory statement, the clause will help guarantee that "patients continue to have access to high-quality, effective and safe pharmaceutical and medical products".

Prime Minister Theresa May announced yesterday (24 July) she will take personal control of Brexit negotiations with the European Union, as time runs out to get a deal before Britain leaves the bloc in March.

He called for an "intensification of negotiations" and "a way forward as opposed to this sort of tough stance that people feel the need to take".

Raab met Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, for the first time on Thursday and is due to go to Brussels next week for more discussions.

Dominic Raab, who replaced David Davis after he quit the role earlier this month in protest over the government's Brexit strategy, said "some conditionality between the two" was needed.

Businesses are increasingly anxious about the possibility of a no-deal Brexit in March 2019, including Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover.

Asked if the Republic of Ireland would suffer more than the United Kingdom in the event of a no-deal Brexit, he said: "I think there's probably too much talk of the negative consequences of a no-deal Brexit".

Insisting there was no sidelining, Raab said later there was no tension and that he will attend all meetings with May.

"The ball is now in the EU's court, and don't get me wrong, there will be plenty more negotiations, I've made that clear, but if they show us the same level of ambition, energy, pragmatism, this deal gets done in 12 weeks", he said.

Big differences remain between Brussels and London over the terms of a new trade setup and the issue of how to regulate the U.K.'s only land border with the European Union, between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

May said on Tuesday that her office would now lead Brexit negotiations rather than the dedicated Brexit ministry, giving the currency a boost.

He said: "The Tories betrayed pensioners before the last general election, and they're doing it again now with their blinkered Brexit.

We all have an obligation to make sure that that does not happen".

But he said the plan was a "road map" to the "sunlit uplands" of a final deal which respects the referendum result.

'But they are there simply for the goal of making money and smuggling and that will actually help by keeping these chaps - who might otherwise do silly things - (busy), giving them something useful and money-making to do.

Some have argued that the Parliament should have a vote on the issue.
