UK will leave the EU on October 31 - finance minister Javid says

One architect of the law, rebel Conservative member of parliament Dominic Grieve, said he thought the law was fit for goal.

Citing the text of his prepared speech, Reuters reported that British Finance Minister Sajid Javid will tell lawmakers that they will be leaving the European Union in 31 days whether they reach a deal or not.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during a visit to North Manchester General Hospital before the Conservative Conference, in Manchester, England, Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Javid said he was not sure how much a no-deal Brexit would cost, telling the BBC: "I don´t think anyone really knows a full proper answer to that question".

The Government will also set a goal for contactless payments to be made available on every city bus.

After almost a decade of deficit-reducing spending cuts under a Conservative-led government, the recently appointed Javid has promised to rewrite the rules that underpin spending.

"The legislation that parliament has passed, of course, has made things more hard, but we are clear our own policy is completely unchanged: We will be leaving on the 31st", Javid said.

The new framework is expected to allow higher levels of state-funded infrastructure investment.

In what the minister has described as "an economic revolution", the government intends to take advantage of low interest rates in order to fund significant spending to improve connectivity across the country; pledging £25 billion to fix Britain's roads, as well as an extra £5 billion for the provision of ultrafast broadband for Britain's remote regions.

"If there were to be some dodge that the government would try to introduce, I think we could counter it". "But the work must start here and now", he will say.

John McDonnell, the opposition Labour Party's finance spokesman, asked the government on Monday to respond to the comments by Hammond, who was kicked out of the Conservative parliamentary party this month over Brexit disagreements. Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.
