Queen approves law seeking to block Oct 31 no-deal Brexit

Supreme Court judges in Westminster Abbey

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.

Those going to the European Union won't have to pay United Kingdom excise duties on cigarettes and alcohol in a no-deal scenario, Britain's Treasury said, adding that a bottle of wine bought at London's Heathrow airport could be up to 2.23 pounds cheaper. Johnson had set up the suspension - called a prorogation - last month in what opponents cast as an attempt to sideline lawmakers as he attempts to pull the country out of the European Union by October 31, with or without a withdrawal deal. EUR/GBP was at 0.8939, close to the opening level of 0.8947.

In the past week, they have passed a law that would force Johnson to request a three-month delay to Brexit to January 31, 2020, with the option of further delays.

Mr Johnson has mentioned he would rather be "unnecessary in a ditch" than lengthen Brexit, more than three years after Britons voted in a referendum to head away the EU.

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.


There is a chance European Union leaders tire of Britain's prevarication and refuse to delay Brexit, although the bloc is unwilling to take the blame for a disorderly divorce.

A spokesman for Johnson said that parliament would be suspended from Monday evening, meaning that an election is very unlikely before October 31 unless parliament is recalled early.

Nonetheless the predominant opposition Labour celebration mentioned it could possibly perchance well fully abet an election as soon as "no deal" used to be off the desk.

Two-thirds of MPs must support an early election, but parliament is now suspended until October 14.
