Brexit: EU says UK has reduced fishing requirements | Brexit

Boris Johnson has lowered himself Proxy There are demands in Brussels for 60% of the catches to be withdrawn from the EU fishing fleet, but the gap between the negotiators is wide, with Michael Barnier telling the camp capitals that 48 hours would be more important than he said.

In explanations to EU ambassadors and MEPs in Brussels, Downing Street has revised its demand from 80%, but it is unclear whether a split will occur the rest of the time, warning member states to avoid rushing.

The European Union has so far offered to repatriate 15% -18% of the fishery. Under the “level playground” rules, the common ground is seen to be slow, with England providing greater flexibility in recent days through a mechanism to ensure that no side can gain competitive advantage by regulating over time.

Speaking before EU delegates via video conference from London, Barnier said there had been some progress in guaranteeing Brussels that future UK domestic subsidies, known as state aid, would not disrupt trade after the 31st of December transition period. But there are problems with domestic enforcement and dispute resolution.

“The coming hours will be decisive,” Barnier said: “What’s the hurry?” “Ambassadors to each country bordering the UK – 11 in total – raised concerns in the level playing field and suggested he be on the verge of his negotiating order”.

EU ambassadors also urged not to allow fishing to become the last issue on the table for fear of last-minute pressure to flee the UK with a deal that could hurt the European fishing industry.

Barnier also said negotiators were looking to add a review section to review the terms in a timely manner, but diplomats rejected the proposal. “The EU wants a stable agreement, which will not be rewritten in a few years,” a source said.

Burnier told the ambassadors to summarize them on Friday, stressing the importance of progress during talks in London over the next two days.

Britain leaves EU

The UK is leaving the EU after years of parliamentary stalemate over Theresa May’s bid to reach an agreement.

An EU diplomat said: “We are approaching a moment of rapid or breakdown in the Brexit talks. Intensive negotiations continue in London. As of this morning, it is not yet clear whether the negotiators will be able to bridge the gaps on issues such as status sport, governance and fisheries.

“As we enter the final stages of the Brexit talks, some member states are becoming increasingly confused.

Several member states, including France, and its chairman, Emmanuel Macron, have repeatedly stressed the importance of protecting Europe’s fisheries, saying they would like to resume negotiations in 2021 rather than rush into an agreement that would damage their coastal communities.

“We need to secure a deal that will deal with this and the rest of the issues in governance and fisheries.

“Rapid progress is essential. An agreement must be reached within a few days if the House and parliament are to complete their respective procedures before the end of the interim period. Democratic research is not negotiable.”

Meanwhile, the UK government has denied seeking to delay the implementation of Northern Ireland protocol on the withdrawal agreement, including new customs checks on goods entering the UK.

HMRC officials told MPs that overnight reports on an agreement on restrictions were “not approved”. They said the “light-touch” function and some “mercy” would be shown to businesses that are not ready.

It has emerged from a public hearing that British businesses must first meet 11m per annum customs notices to sell their goods in Northern Ireland.

Conservative MP Bob Stewart responded with shock to what he revealed during the Northern Ireland Select Committee. “Bloody hell, that’s a lot of heck,” he said.

Customs announcements are to be made as part of the Northern Ireland Code from January 1, but a major software organization, the Freight Vehicle Operations Service, has informed the panel that it will not go “end to end” with businesses until December 14th.
