    Theresa May sets out proposals for post-Brexit transition period: Tories divided

    The document suggests UK will abide by new EU laws and be involved in talks on fishing quotas, but will not be able to sign trade deals without the EU's permission.

    UK has published proposals for how it wants the transition period immediately after Brexit to work. It says the period should last as long as it takes to “prepare and implement the new processes and new systems”. Number 10 denied this meant it would be longer than the planned two years.

    Proposal to give £10,000 per year to every UK citizen under 55

    Scotland is already piloting UBI schemes in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife and North Ayrshire.

    The United Kingdom government should give £10,000 per year to every citizen under 55, a report suggests. The Royal Society for the encouragement of the Arts, Manufactrurers and Commerce (RSA) says it could pave the way to everyone getting a basic state wage. The Labour Party has also said it is looking into similar arguments for a Universal Basic Income (UBI).
