Liam Fox steadfast on ending freedom of movement in March 2019

Adam Boulton July 30 2017 12:01am The Sunday Times What Theresa saw on her holidays a cabinet crushing her vision of Brexit Adam Boulton

The heated response came after Sir Vince seized on apparent differences between International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and Chancellor Philip Hammond over plans for a post-Brexit three year transition period for migrant workers in order to brand the Cabinet as being in a state of "civil war".

Mr Jones said the Chancellor's words were "dangerous" and that a three-year transitional period after 2019 could be perilous ahead of the next scheduled General Election. If the British government is still split on how to approach the issue it can not encourage anyone here that a coherent plan is being pursued, a plan which will work for businesses and for ordinary people who cross what is now an invisible border regularly.

Hammond had said should be no immediate changes to immigration or trading rules when Britain leaves the European Union in March 2019, and the status quo could endure until mid-2022.

Gerard Lyons, a former economic adviser to Johnson when he was London mayor, said a transition period should last for no more than two years.

But Fox told The Sunday Times newspaper: "If there have been discussions on that I have not been party to them. I have not been involved in any discussions on that".

"All this agitation by the chancellor and his allies is hugely discourteous to her and undermines her authority", Jones said in The Mail On Sunday newspaper.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos backing Neymar to quit Barcelona for PSG
But the Monaco striker feels he is well-positioned to usurp the former Manchester United star should a deal go ahead. Real Madrid have great players but it is clear that until August 31, anything can happen.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, he said: "Many of the "risks" being highlighted about Brexit are perceived risks, not real risks".

But Mr Hammond was praised by Conservative Remainers, including Sir Nicholas Soames, who told the Mail on Sunday the chancellor had "restored diginity to the political infant class who want Brexit at any cost".

"I have a policy: it is to stay in the single market and customs union to protect British jobs and living standards".

Former lord chancellor Lord Falconer also backed staying in the single market and the TUC general secretary, Frances O'Grady, insisted the United Kingdom should not quit.

Any transitional arrangement "has to be an agreement by the Cabinet", Fox said.
