Duty-free shopping to return under no-deal Brexit

The Treasury said that under a no-deal Brexit, UK excise duty would no longer be due on alcohol and cigarettes bought when leaving Britain, meaning a bottle of wine bought at Heathrow by a departing passenger would be up to 2.23 pounds cheaper, according to media reports.

The Department for Finance said: "As the United Kingdom has today made a decision to apply an unrestricted Duty-Free scheme in the event that the country leaves the EU with no deal, in line with the reciprocal policy, Ireland would not in this eventuality commence the relevant legislative measure and European Union rules in relation to passenger travel from ports and airports between the EU and third countries would therefore apply from 31 October".

It was unclear what Johnson's next move would be: the law will oblige him to seek a delay unless he can strike a new deal, but European Union leaders have repeatedly said they have received no specific proposals.

His government has indicated it will look for loopholes in the MPs' legislation in order to allow a "no deal" exit, although it insists it always upholds the law.

After expelling 21 of his Conservative MPs who rebelled over the Brexit law last week, Johnson no longer has a majority in the 650-seat House of Commons.

But the Parliament is now suspended till October 14.

No Brexit the least bit?

The no-deal blocking bill will force Johnson to seek a three-month extension to the October 31 deadline unless parliament has either approved a deal or consented by October 19 to leave without one.

If Labour wins, the party has promised to hold a new referendum, with an option to remain in the European Union - which could see Brexit cancelled. Catch all of the Stay TV motion on HEARALPUBLICIST 24×7 and HEARALPUBLICIST India.
