United Kingdom will pay Brexit 'divorce bill', government admits

David Davis GETTYMr Davis revealed senior European politicians such as Mr Macron are putting pressure on Brussels

Opposition Labour party has vowed to vote against the legislation unless there were significant changes to the details previously set out, while the Scottish National Party (SNP) said there needed to be "clarity" over which powers repatriated from the European Union should go to the devolved nations.

The prime minister, who on Thursday marks one year since taking office after last year's referendum to leave the European Union, remains vulnerable and questions remain over how long she can stay.

The clue is in the name: the Repeal Bill will repeal the 1972 European Communities Act which took Britain into the EU and led to European law taking precedence over laws passed in British parliament.

More than a decade of mass immigration from the European Union under freedom of movement rules was a major factor in the referendum that saw Britons vote to leave the EU.

Corbyn, joined by Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, will meet Barnier in Brussels on Thursday.

"As the bill stands now I couldn't in good conscience recommend to the Scottish Parliament that it gives legislative consent to this bill", Ms Sturgeon said.

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said an option for Britain during current Brexit negotiations could be "staying within a reformed EU" on Saturday. Another key issue is that the bill does not include the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

With the help of the 10 DUP lawmakers, May's government has a majority of just 13 in the 650-member parliament.

She wrote: "Many children I have spoken to over the previous year have told me they are very anxious about the uncertainty surrounding their status after Britain leaves the EU".

But a spokeswoman for Theresa May stressed the size of the bill was still being debated, adding: 'Our position is we will need to discuss a fair settlement'.

The government stated: "We remain committed to safeguarding and protecting the UK's long history of environmental protection".

By working together, in the national interest, we can ensure we have a fully functioning legal system on the day we leave the European Union, he said.

The bill will also end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

It wanted Britain to quit the nuclear treaty, but to continue working with Euratom members to ensure a "smooth transition" to a new United Kingdom regime, with "no interruption in safeguard arrangements", it said on Thursday (13 July).

Labour said Corbyn's meeting with Barnier marked its growing importance in the Brexit process - although Barnier insisted he would only negotiate with the government.

"At the beginning [of the negotiations] you'll remember we had a slightly hard month of two where there were talks of punishment and Lord knows what else", Mr Davis told the European Union Select Committee.
