Theresa May says UK can ‘set example to world’ in Brexit deal
The UK can “set an example to the world” in the way it negotiates a new relationship with the EU after Brexit, Theresa May has said. In a statement to Parliament, the PM said the task would be “complex” but a deal was in both sides’ interests She insisted she would not allow Brexit to disrupt “historic progress” made in Northern Ireland through a hard border. But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the UK’s objectives were “no clearer” after “20 wasted months”. “This government is nowhere near delivering a good deal for Britain,” he said.
Diesels down again as car registrations slide
New car registrations fell in February for the 11th month running, driven by a sharp drop in sales of diesel vehicles. Almost 81,000 new cars were registered last month, a 2.8 per cent drop on February 2017, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
Sue Robinson, director at the National Franchised Dealers Association, said that the new car market had performed “as expected in the short month of February”. “The used car market remained buoyant and we look forward to the traditionally stronger month of March for the new car market, where customers can usually take advantage of substantial discounts and offers resulting from the plate change.”
Apprenticeships: Almost half of company managers fear Government will miss target as numbers fall
Almost half of company managers think the Government will fail to hit its target of creating three million apprenticeships by 2020, new research has found. The Government set the target in 2015 but official figures show the numbers of new apprenticeships slumped last year. Of 1,640 managers polled by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), 51 per cent expressed concern that the country will need greater investment in skills after Brexit as the number of EU migrants falls. More than a fifth said delays in standards for apprenticeship schemes being approved and implemented had reduced the number of those taking them up. About 900 new apprentices have been waiting to start an apprenticeship in management since the standard being approved in August, the CMI said.
Toyota sounds the death knell for diesel: Japanese giant to stop selling cars powered by the fuel in Britain and Europe by end of the year
Toyota is to stop selling diesel-powered passenger cars in Britain and Europe by the end of this year, company bosses have announced. The Japanese car giant revealed the change in strategy at a briefing on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. Fewer than 7 per cent of Toyota’s UK sales were diesel last year, dropping to just 4.5 per cent in January, with the rest being petrol and hybrid.
UK driving licences ‘will not be valid in the EU after Brexit’: Britons might be forced to buy a £5.50 permit to drive on the continent
British motorists could face new barriers when trying to drive on the continent post Brexit because UK licences will no longer be recognised by the EU, the European Commission has suggested. If no arrangements are put in place, Britons could be banned from being automatically able to drive in Europe once the country’s departure from the EU is confirmed. A contingency plan being put in place would instead see drivers having to buy a 12-month International Driving Permit that will need to be used alongside their UK licence when driving a car in Europe. These are currently in operation around the world, but Britons do not need one for every country. However, the AA says it is recommended or required in around 140, including the USA.
