The government played down fears that holidaymakers would be hit with swingeing roaming charges for using mobile phone in the EU.

It has outlined the prospects in one of the Government's new round of notices, in this case focused on satellites and space programmes, on the effects of Britain leaving the European Union without a deal next March.

Last month, Theresa May's government published the first 25 of a total of more than 80 technical notices that are meant to give the British public and businesses advice on coping with the possibility of a "no-deal" Brexit next March. Organisations and businesses are preparing for a no deal.

"If that happens then the queues of HGVs in Kent will make the jams seen in the summer of 2015 appear as little more than waiting for the traffic lights to change", it adds.

And he took a swipe at businesses, such as John Lewis, saying: "I think it's probably rather easy at this moment in time for any business that isn't doing rather well to point to Brexit".

"We would be mindful of our strict legal obligations, but the amount and the phased way it is set out in the withdrawal agreement would fall away because there would be no deal".




The potential consequences of a no-deal Brexit were spelled out by Bank of England governor Mark Carney at a special meeting of the Cabinet when he warned ministers of a 35% crash in house prices over three years in a worst case scenario.

This follows Raab's confirmation that the United Kingdom will not pay its £39 billion (€44 billion) "divorce bill" to Brussels if there is no overall deal on its departure from the EU.

Edmund King, AA president, commented: "We envisage quite a rush on post offices next year for the £5.50 IDPs if no deal is reached".

It has also said United Kingdom nationals moving to an European Union country may not be able to exchange their licence for an European Union equivalent following Brexit. "It had been anticipated that a deal might have facilitated a more sensible outcome that involved the United Kingdom courts and competition authorities having "due regard" to CJEU rulings, but it is clear that a "no deal" scenario increases the risk of potential future divergence".

The CBI said the notices also showed the extent of disruption consumers can expect if "ideology wins over evidence".

Director general Carolyn Fairbairn said: "Efforts on all sides should be geared towards securing the withdrawal agreement to protect the transition period".
