The plan would allow the United Kingdom to make its own free trade deals around the world, while not losing the benefits of frictionless trade to and from the rest of Europe.

Prime Minister Theresa May will today hold the first ever Cabinet meeting in the north east of England, in a bid to convince voters of her commitment to the so-called Northern Powerhouse.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Theresa May said she was taking personal control of Brexit negotiations with the EU.

The EU's chief negotiator has ruled out allowing the United Kingdom to collect customs duties on its behalf, a key United Kingdom proposal for post-Brexit trade.

Having only taken the position less than three weeks ago, Mr Raab put a courageous face on and told his negotiating partner: "We have work to do".

The Cabinet will also talk about making Brexit work throughout the United Kingdom and the role of Local Enterprise Partnerships in boosting growth and prosperity.

New Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab attempted a desperate fight back in the hope of jumpstarting the stalled negotiations by reaffirming the link between the £39bn divorce bill and a trade deal.

Mr Hancock said: "We are working right across government to ensure that the health sector and the industry are prepared and that people's health will be safeguarded in the event of a no-deal Brexit".

One of the key questions in the Brexit process is how much detail about the future relationship - including the crucial issue of financial services - will be pinned down before the United Kingdom leaves.

Meanwhile, the Government published details of the legislation it plans to use to implement the withdrawal agreement taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union next March.

After telling travelling members of the House of Lord's EU Committee that the White Paper is not a "landing zone" for negotiations, Mr Barnier opened the door for an even weaker Brexit plan.

The announcement comes amid increasing uncertainty about how Britain would finally leave the European Union and whether the two sides could reach a permanent agreement to determine their future relations.

"There must be a firm commitment in the withdrawal agreement requiring the framework for the future relationship to be translated into legal text as soon as possible", Mr Raab told MPs. "Now we're going to be wasting money on a whole department to prepare for the increasingly likely no-deal nightmare".

Initially announced last November, the Bill will create a new financial authority to manage payments to the European Union over the years after Brexit.

The plan is to start debating the new bill once a withdrawal agreement has been agreed with the European Union and approved by way of a vote in parliament.

"From the 30th March 2019 until the 31st December 2020, common rules will remain in place".
