Ford calls for Brexit clarity to help it make UK investment decision- Report

That would effectively create a new border in the Irish Sea between the island of Ireland and Britain.

That comment elicited repeated shouts of "It's a British issue sir", from UKIP member David Coburn.

Addressing the European Parliament, Mr Juncker was cheered by Eurosceptic MEPs as he noted the UK's departure was due on 29 March, 2019.

Responding to the small group, Mr Juncker said the time would come "when you will regret your decision".

Britain is very close to agreeing the details of an implementation period with the European Union for its transition out of the bloc, junior Brexit minister Robin Walker said on Monday. Do you accept that, or do you then put in a guard to stop them doing that.

In his opening address to MEPs, Mr Juncker said: "Prime Minister May: give us some more clarity on how the United Kingdom sees its future relationship with the European Union".

"Northern Ireland trade with Great Britain is worth almost 4 times more than Northern Ireland exports to the Republic".

The full text of the prime minister's speech is available here.

'We are monitoring the situation as the negotiations unfold and look forward to receiving additional clarity at the March council, ' said Honda's European government affairs manager Patrick Keating. "It is all for one and one for all - that is what it means to be part of this union", he said.

Nick Bailey had visited Sergei Skripal's home after the discovery of the pair in the centre of the cathedral town. The troops include Royal Marines, RAF and chemical specialists, are understood to have been deployed.

Delivering a damning verdict on May's speech, the Parliament's Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said, "It is mainly repeating the red lines that we know already two years".

"There was this Mansion House speech by Mrs".

European Union leaders have been pressing British Prime Minister Theresa May to clarify what she wants before they agree their position on the future economic partnership at a summit later this month.

"You can not have the rights of Norway and then the obligations of Canada".

His European Parliament motion calls for an "association agreement" to deal with the future UK-EU relationship.

Asked whether the EU might be ready to impose sanctions on Russia if, as May alleged yesterday, it agreed that it was "highly likely" that Moscow was behind the attack on a former Russian double agent, a senior member of the executive European Commission told reporters that London could count on Brussels.

The EU and Britain are hoping to seal a deal this month on a transition period after Brexit, and start talks on the future relationship this spring.

Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, said he was "surprised" that the prime minister had expected it to accept her demands in the Mansion House speech.

"I do object in the strongest terms to people who have limited experience of the troubles in Northern Ireland throwing threats of violence around as some kind of bargaining chip", Foster said.
