Brexit Secretary David Davis will call for “a deal like no other in history” as he heads into talks with the EU.

Subjects for the negotiations, which officially start in Brussels, include the status of expats, the UK’s “divorce bill” and the Northern Ireland border.

2018 Queen’s Speech cancelled by government 

There will be no Queen’s Speech next year to give MPs more time to deal with Brexit laws, the government says.

Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom said the next parliamentary session was being doubled in length to two years. The unusual move would allow MPs to scrutinise “substantial amounts of legislation”, she said. This year’s Queen’s Speech was due on Monday but has been put off until Wednesday as Theresa May’s minority government seeks a deal with the DUP.

Philip Hammond pushes to put business at heart of Brexit 

Philip Hammond has launched his campaign to put business concerns at the heart of Brexit, warning that crashing out of the EU without a deal would be “a very, very bad outcome for Britain”. The chancellor, who will set out his views in detail on Tuesday in a rescheduled Mansion House speech, said the country had to leave the EU “via a slope not a cliff-edge”. As Britain prepares to begin formal negotiations with the EU in Brussels on Monday, the chancellor sought to reassert himself in the Conservative party’s internal debate on Brexit, emphasising the need for both sides to reach a transitional agreement that meets the concerns of British and European entrepreneurs.

Campaign to make electric Mini in UK goes into overdrive 

Theresa May has told ministers to “pull out all the stops” to ensure that the electric Mini is made in Britain. Losing it to a factory in the Netherlands or Germany would deal a big blow at the start of Brexit talks. Greg Clark, the business secretary, has travelled to BMW’s headquarters in Munich twice in the past six months to make the case for the plant in Cowley, Oxfordshire, in a sign of government anxiety about the decision. A German politician close to Angela Merkel said that BMW was prepared to pull all investment out of Britain, putting 8,000 jobs at risk, in order to defend the single market if Brexit talks became confrontational.

Aviva in talks with driverless car developers as it faces up to the future 

Aviva is preparing for the arrival of driverless vehicles by trying to seal deals with manufacturers. The emergence of driverless cars, which could be common within 15 years, is expected to rattle the motor insurance industry, with many concerned that insurance companies will no longer be needed. Aviva’s international insurance chief, Maurice Tulloch, said the FTSE 100 business was talking to “a number” of companies involved in developing driverless cars, “as I’m sure a number of people are. ”A deal would either see drivers automatically get Aviva insurance when buying a driverless car or come in the shape of a collaboration with a start-up in the sector. The insurer confirmed that “if signed this would an Aviva first”.
