Second Round of Brexit Talks Kicks Off in Brussels

Roughly 4-in-10 UK firms report Brexit hit to investment: CBI

"For us, it's incredibly important we now make good progress", added Davis, who held a first day of talks a month ago to agree an agenda, a year after Britons vote to leave the EU. After opening the talks with Barnier Monday, Davis returned to London and is due back in Brussels Thursday for a press conference with the European Union negotiator.

"We need to examine and compare our respective positions in order to make good progress", he said.

Davis is attempting to accelerate a dialogue between himself and Barnier, open divisions in British Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet make it hard to determine the British course of action, Bloomberg News said Monday.

Working groups focused on three issues: citizens' rights; an European Union demand that Britain pay billions of euros to cover ongoing European Union budget commitments; and other loose ends.

Even though May had insisted that the Brexit process can't be reversed, her government will not be able to pursue the firm Brexit line she favored, following an undesired result of the June snap election, in which her party lost majority in the House of Commons.


On Sunday, finance minister Philip Hammond, an advocate for a transition to Brexit, said most ministers now agreed with him: "Five weeks ago the idea of a transition period was quite a new concept". "I think my colleagues should be very quiet, stick to their own departmental duties and I think the public expects us to be disciplined and effective".

Dozens of officials from both sides are involved, some shuttling among meeting rooms scattered over almost half the floors of the European Commission's 13-storey Berlaymont headquarters, fuelled, one said, by EU coffee and biscuits.

The British proposal offers European Union nationals who have lived in Britain for at least five years - as of an unspecified cutoff date - the right to live, work and access benefits. "But a Labour Brexit would look very different to the race-to-the-bottom tax haven backed by this Conservative government", he said.

Mr Barnier, who has made clear that he is not prepared to start talks on a trade deal until there has been sufficient progress on the financial settlement, retorted icily he could not hear any whistling, "just the clock ticking".

United Kingdom finance minister Philip Hammond said Sunday that Britain will take responsibility for the money it owes, but dismissed the 100 billion euro figure as "ridiculous".
