Any Delay in Brexit Negotiations With UK Impossible - EU Parliament President

Posted July 17, 2017

"For us, it's incredibly important we now make good progress", added Mr Davis, who held a first day of talks a month ago to agree an agenda, a year after Britons vote to leave the EU.

As doubt for and objection to Brexit continue, progress favorable to those in support of the breaking away has been made, creating a silver lining for the closely watched second round of talks.

After his arrival at the EU's headquarters on Monday morning, the European Commission released pictures of Mr Davis sitting opposite his EU counterpart, Michel Barnier, with their respective teams.

Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron seized on the splits, saying: "The Conservative government is more interested in tearing itself apart than getting on with the monumental challenge it has set itself on Brexit".

Protecting the rights of all our citizens is the priority for me going into this round and I'm clear that it's something we must make real progress on. At a one-day session in June both sides agreed on a broad timetable for the talks.

But May's minority government remains fragile one month after the snap June 8 election in which her Conservative Party lost its majority, leaving the European Union wondering whether she can actually formulate a coherent Brexit policy.

Hammond accused unnamed colleagues of briefing against him to try to undermine what is seen as his push for a "soft Brexit" that would prioritize trade rather than hard-liners' demands for controls on European Union immigration or an end to European Union legal oversight. Her spokesman said she would tell ministers not to reveal cabinet discussions.

"I do think on many fronts it would be helpful if my colleagues - all of us - focused on the job at hand", he told the BBC. "This bill means that we will be able to exit the European Union with maximum certainty, continuity and control", Davis said. In particular, the delegations are expected to focus on how to manage new border arrangements, what rights EU and United Kingdom citizens will hold post-Brexit and, most controversially, how much London owes the Union.

Earlier last week, British PM Theresa May's govt published a draft law to formally end Britain's membership of the EU.

The Brexit Secretary is hoping to win round Michel Barnier over Britain's plan to guarantee the future rights of European nationals living in the United Kingdom amid deep divisions back home.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson then fanned the flames when he said in the Commons that Brussels could "go whistle" if it expected the United Kingdom to pay a hefty "divorce bill" in respect of its outstanding financial obligations.

Hammond, one of Johnson's main cabinet rivals, said Sunday that Britain will take responsibility for the money it owes, but dismissed the 10-billion-euro figure as "ridiculous".
