Full Brexit deal with European Union by March will be a challenge - Raab

"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".

Mr Hunt signalled a change in rhetoric when he visited Germany on Monday, warning that only Russian President Vladimir Putin would welcome a no-deal Brexit.

But the plan has provoked fury in May's Conservative party and prompted the resignations of Davis and foreign minister Boris Johnson earlier this month.

Mr Raab stressed that the United Kingdom was serious about about the possibility of a no deal walkaway from the European Union, as Tory former PM Sir John Major said that a second referendum was "morally justified".

"On taking up the appointment, we had a very sensible conversation about the crossroads of the negotiations we are in, some of the tensions that were widely reported".

Fiat Chrysler names new CEO to replace ailing Marchionne
CNH Industrial declined 2.9 percent, while Exor, the holding company of Fiat's founding Agnelli family, was down 4 percent. He's been heading the Jeep brand since 2009 and has also been running RAM and FCA in the Asia Pacific region.

While the United Kingdom regulatory authority, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, has sought to reassure stakeholders that it is proactively planning for all possible outcomes of Brexit negotiations concerning the EMA, concerns remain about disruption to the supply of crucial drugs after Brexit.

The decision, sneaked out in a written statement late on the last day before MPs go on holiday, officially means that Mrs May is in nominal charge of negotiations.

"Both of us will be supported by the Cabinet Office Europe Unit and with this in mind the Europe Unit will have overall responsibility for the preparation and conduct of the negotiations, drawing upon support from DExEU and other departments as required".

Mrs May said: "We must step up the pace of negotiations and get on to deliver a good deal that will bring greater prosperity and security to both British and European citizens".

Unveiling the plans in a white paper in the House of Commons, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab described it as "another key milestone in the UK's path to leaving the EU".

Theresa May set for first Irish border visit since…
Brexiteer Mrs Foster insisted Mrs May would come away hearing of the challenges and opportunities presented by Brexit. Ireland's premier Leo Varadkar has said his government will have to "change gear" in how it deals with Brexit.

Instead, May's Brexit adviser Olly Robbins, a senior civil servant, was increasingly been seen as the man in charge.

The pro-EU Tory said: "We have been calling for some time for the Government to set out the full consequences of no deal".

But at the Brexit Committee, Mr Robbins agreed with the suggestion of prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg that it would be "unfair" to suggest he was driving Government policy. He knew from his time on the committee that this would be testing.

Theresa May has set herself on collision course with Brexiteer MPs after it was revealed that the law keeping Britain under the jurisdiction of the European Union will apply after exit day.

"It is one part of the whole deal we are doing with our European Union partners".
