United Kingdom and Switzerland strike post-Brexit continuity agreement

But the head of the Confederation of British Industry, Carolyn Fairbairn, said on Sunday the "unfolding nightmare" of Britain's exit meant that major trade partners like Japan and South Korea were reluctant to sign deals until they knew the exact shape of future EU-Britain ties.

With only 47 days to go, there have been claims the prime minister is running down the clock to make it more likely that MPs will back her withdrawal agreement as so many of them fear a no-deal departure.

At a briefing in Parliament on Friday, Vandendriessche said, "We deplore Tusk's statement which also demonstrates the unwillingness of certain European Union officials to work for an agreement and [it] is profoundly distasteful".

Britain and Switzerland will sign an agreement on Monday to continue trading on preferential terms after Brexit, the British trade department said, protecting a trade relationship worth 32 billion pounds, Trend reported citing Reuters.

"We can't allow that to happen", Sir Keir said.

May is already due to update parliament on her progress towards a deal on Wednesday and then on Thursday to give parliament a chance to express their opinion.

But it was rejected by the UK Parliament and if it is not approved by Brexit day, the default position would be a no-deal Brexit.




DIT says that with the agreement the British auto industry, which has consistently warned against a no-deal Brexit, could avoid up to £8m a year in tariff charges on their exports that would apply if the agreement had not been reached.

May held talks in Brussels last week in an attempt to secure changes to the Northern Ireland backstop as demanded by Tory MPs.

A number of government ministers will also be meeting their counterparts across the continent this week, in order to underline Mrs May's determination to achieve a deal.

Dr Fox has been leading the process of either "rolling over" these deals - by mirroring their terms in new agreements bespoke to the United Kingdom - or negotiating fresh deals.

He told the Sophy Ridge on Sunday programme that it would lead to a "very hard border" on the island of Ireland and is contrary to the Good Friday Agreement, the peace deal he helped negotiate which brought an end to The Troubles.

But Mr Johnson insisted that a separate codicil setting out amendments to the backstop plan would not be "good enough", indicating that he is holding out for changes to the text of the agreement itself.

Yvette Cooper and Nick Boles, two senior backbenchers whose anti-no-deal amendment failed to gain majority support last month, have not yet made a final decision about whether to table a reworked version or wait until 27 February, the Guardian understands.
