Chequers: Here’s what the UK’s Brexit position is on customs, goods, ECJ, standards and the Irish border

Friday 6 July 2018 9:00 pm Whether it was the threat from the ERG, the Prime Minister’s concern of a knock-on on the nextGeneral Election or an acknowledgement it would be unlikely to fly with the EU, transition will continue to run from March 2019 until December 2020.Trade in goodsThe government is proposing a “free trade area for goods” which has the benefit of avoiding friction at the Irish border.This would be based on “a common rulebook for all goods including agri-food, with the UK making an upfront choice to commit by treaty to ongoing harmonisation with EU rules”. However it would only cover “those necessary to provide for frictionless trade at the border”.The UK wants to retain the right to diverge from EU rules “recognising that this would have consequences”.ServicesServices would not be covered by this arrangement, under the UK’s proposals. whatsapp Share whatsapp Chequers: Here’s what the UK’s Brexit position is on customs, goods, ECJ, standards and the Irish border The government is planning to strike a separate deal with “regulatory flexibility” where required. But the proposal admits this means “the UK and the EU will not have current levels of access to each other’s markets”.StandardsUnder the current proposals, the UK will commit to putting together a common rulebook on state aid, and establish “cooperative arrangements between regulators on competition”. The two sides would also agree to maintain high regulatory standards for the environment, climate change, social and employment, and consumer rights.The ECJLaw will be interpreted by respective courts with “due regard paid to EU case law in areas where the UK continued to apply a common rulebook”.The proposal once again pushes the concept of a joint committee and binding independent arbitration, which would accommodate the role of the Court of Justice of the European Union as the interpreter of EU rules. However, the proposal insists “the court of one party cannot resolve disputes between the two”.CustomsGone is max fac, gone is the new customs partnership (NCP) – at least in name. In their place is the facilitated customs arrangement or FCA, which the government argues would “remove the need for customs checks and controls between the UK and the EU as if a combined customs territory”. The new system mimics the NCP in that the UK would collect tariffs on behalf of the EU and “enable the UK to control its own tariffs for trade with the rest of the world”. It claims that businesses would pay “the right or no tariff – in the vast majority of cases upfront, and otherwise through a repayment mechanism”.The Irish borderThrough these various proposals, the government believes there would be no need for a hard border in Ireland, and that there will be no need for the backstop to be deployed. However, the proposals should also pave the way for the backstop to be agreed, the government says.No dealCabinet spent a good couple of hours discussing preparations for a no deal today. However there is little detail of what exactly those plans are. All the proposal says is that it is “responsible to continue preparations for a range of potential outcomes, including the possibility of ‘no deal’.”Given the short period remaining before the necessary conclusion of negotiations this autumn, we agreed preparations should be stepped up,” it adds. The UK government has finally agreed a position on Brexit – but who blinked, and will the EU go for it?Here are the crucial elements of today’s big step forward.The transition period will remain the same Catherine Neilan read more

Ask a Climatologist: Alaska’s hottest temp ever matches Hawaii’s

first_imgAlaska’s Energy DeskAsk a Climatologist: Alaska’s hottest temp ever matches Hawaii’sJune 14, 2017 by Annie Feidt, Alaska’s Energy Desk Share:Graphic courtesy of Brian BrettschneiderFairbanks hit 90 degrees last week for the first time in four years. The heat was very localized to the Tanana and Yukon river valleys.We asked Brian Brettschneider, with our Ask a Climatologist segment, which areas of Alaska usually see the hottest temperatures in the summer.He says the warmest temperatures are almost always found in the Interior.Interview Transcript:Brian: Somewhere from about Tanana and then eastward to the Canadian border around Eagle. Especially when you get into the Tanana and the Yukon river valleys, those are the places that over the last 100 or so years, they’ve observed the most days in the upper 80’s, the 90’s and even a 100 degree reading occurred at Fort Yukon in 1915.Annie: And what makes that the warm spot?Brian: Well, there are a lot of things that go into it. One is, at our high latitude, we get nearly continuous daylight in Interior Alaska. The sun sets for a few hours but it’s basically at solar heating for nearly the entire day. Also, June is a very sunny month, so you don’t have clouds that are blocking that sun’s energy. Then you also have, in say the Tanana and the Yukon river valleys, those are relatively low elevation, so, as most people know, high elevation is cooler, there’s less atmosphere above you.They’re also far from the coast. Here in Anchorage, along any part of the coastal areas of Alaska, when the sun is out and it starts to heat up the ground, hot air rises and air has to fill in for that air that’s risen and that comes in from all directions. But when you’re in close proximity to the water, the air that’s filling in for the air that’s risen, is relatively cooler. So a lot of things come together to make it warmer in the Interior.Annie: What else do we know about that 100 degree record in Fort Yukon?Brian: That happened in 1915. A number of places in the Interior were in the 90’s and Fort Yukon topped out at 100 degrees. Looking at all the data around it, it may have been a little bit too warm, but it’s plausible that it occurred. Interestingly, it’s the only 100 degree reading ever in Alaska, it also ties Hawaii for their warmest temperature on record. So that’s an interesting bit of trivia, that Alaska and Hawaii share a record for the hottest all time temperature. And it’s also worth noting- the 100 degree reading in Hawaii- some people have looked into it, and it’s probably a bad reading, it probably overstates what their hottest temperature is. Their hottest temperature is probably something in the upper 90’s. So it’s very possible it’s gotten warmer in Alaska than it ever has in Hawaii.Share this story:last_img read more

Mild winter and lower use hit Centrica outlook

first_img Joseph Millis Mild winter and lower use hit Centrica outlook Thursday 20 November 2014 8:39 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ BRITISH Gas owner Centrica yesterday reduced its earnings forecast, as milder winter weather cut into its revenues.The firm said the average residential gas consumption for the first 10 months of the year was 21 per cent lower than in 2013, while the average electricity consumption was down seven per cent.It added that the average fuel bill is expected to be £100 lower as a result.Centrica also warned that falling oil and gas prices could “significantly” impact its business.The company said the number of British Gas residential customer accounts fell by 50,000 in the months since June, but has recently begun to grow.Despite cutting its earnings-per-share forecasts by 2p, Centrica said it expected to see a “return to more normal weather conditions”, which would boost its year-end profits.“We will likely spend less on finding gas as commodity prices come down,” said interim chief financial officer Jeff Bell on a conference call to journalists.The company’s 2015 upstream capital expenditure is expected to fall to £900m from £1bn this year.Despite its earnings downgrade for this year, Centrica was more upbeat about the coming year, saying a return to normal weather conditions in Britain and North America would lead to earnings growth in 2015.The utility also said it had started signing up new customers in Britain in recent weeks through a new tariff it launched in partnership with supermarket chain Sainsbury’s .Shares in Centrica fell 1.57 per cent to close at 293.90p. center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likezenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailPost FunGreat Songs That Artists Are Now Embarrassed OfPost FunMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorLoan Insurance WealthDolly Parton, 74, Takes off Makeup, Leaves Us With No WordsLoan Insurance WealthPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

News / Russia extends TIR restrictions to Finnish border as IRU warns of economic pain

first_imgBy Alex Lennane 27/03/2014 It’s not just its actions in Crimea and Ukraine that is causing Russia to fall foul of the international community. Last week it extended its restrictions on the use of TIR Carnets for road hauliers to include the north-west region at the Finnish-Russian border.While the Federal Customs Service (FCS) of Russia announced the extension, covering the Torfyanovka Customs office at the Vaalimaa border crossing on March 18, to start on March 20, the TIR was still being accepted on March 21, while Vyborg, Karelia and Murmansk Customs offices have not been restricted.The north-west border is significant. According to Russia Supply Chain last year, more than 7,000 trucks pass through Finland’s border stations into Russia each day, of which some 85 to 90% use the TIR Carnet. With more than 2m annual crossings, it is the busiest point between the two countries, with the European road E18 passing through, and is just 202km to Saint Petersburg.According to the International Road Transport Union (IRU), which is vigorously fighting the attempted ban introduced in parts of Russia in August last year, road transport operations costs have multiplied by up to 83 times. It estimated that hauliers are having to pay between $83 and $2,574 per vehicle for the new mandatory additional guarantees.The union yesterday briefed the Russian press on the potential economic damage to the Russian economy, which saw GDP growth of just 0.3% in February. Russia’s Economic Ministry said on Monday that it forecasts net capital outflow in the first quarter of this year to be in the region of $65 to $70bn  – but “closer to $70bn”. In the whole of 2013 it was $62.7bn.Russia is proposing an alternative system which has not been welcomed by European hauliers.“We don’t think it is as robust as the TIR,” said Peter Cullum, head of international affairs at the Road Haulage Association. “It is run by two Russian companies, but we don’t know who the financial backers are. But the current restrictions are not good either for us or for Russia.”The move by Russia follows not just one, but two Russian court rulings last month invalidating the country’s complaint against the TIR for unpaid debts of $650m. Both the Arbitration Court and Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation have ruled that the allegations made by the FCS used to justify the restrictions on TIR Carnets are “inconsistent with reality” and defamatory. On March 3, IRU, which administers the security payment system, released key documents on more than 4,000 cases of alleged TIR debts.It said: “This confirmation of the absence of any debt from the TIR guarantee chain towards Russian Customs comes as no surprise, as we all know how efficiently the TIR System functions. The IRU has nothing to hide, which is why we are making this information available for public scrutiny, with no restrictions. We are now ready to explain these files in detail to any interested party, including to any Russian competent authority in order for these cases to be officially closed once and for all.”The IRU claims that “on average there are less than 0.002% irregularities out of an average 1.5m TIR transport operations carried out per year on Russian Federation territory”.last_img read more

He would play there on sweltering afternoons, stacking rocks along the rails under the watch of his grandfather, who established a firm rule: Weyling wasn’t to cross the right of way into the white part of town.The other side had nicer homes and parks, all the medical offices, and the town’s only hospital.

Women’s Union members forced to fork over more cash

first_img US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again Facebook Twitter NewsEconomy North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) Women’s Union members forced to fork over more cash News As the weather turns chilly and the yeardraws to an end, North Korean residents have been kept quite busy by mandatoryyear-end self criticism  sessions. In particular, women who are members ofthe Korean Democratic Women’s Union are doubly busy since they must balancetheir family responsibilities, undergo the criticism sessions, and raise moneyfor the union to pay the regime.   In a recent telephone conversation with theDaily NK, a source from Yanggang Province reported, “Members of the KoreanDemocratic Women’s Union are extremely busy attending to year-end tasks for theunion, while also being forced to participate in the self-criticisms. The tasksof the Women’s Union include earning cash for the regime under the “loyaltyforeign currency” campaign and supporting the Korean People’s Army (KPA). Theseassignments are forcing the members to crack open their wallets and aretherefore resulting in considerable discontent.” Daily NK crosschecked this news with anindependent source in the same province. According to the source, Women’s Unionmembers are being asked to contribute between 10,000 and 15,000 KPW(approximately 1.16- 1.74 USD) apiece to support the KPA. Yanggang ProvinceWomen’s Union members also contributed about 30,000 KPW (approximately 3.5USD). to be excused from the agricultural and social mobilizations earlier thisyear. The women will sell in the market to earn money for the army, but it is“by no means a small sum for the majority of them,” he noted.“Additionally, these women are forced tocontribute money for the construction of [Kim Jong Il, Kim Il Sung] statues andto support “loyalty foreign currency” movements.  Accordingly, they arebeing pushed to the limits in the marketplace just to make these payments.Party loyalty is assessed by one’s ability to fulfill these obligations, soeven though nobody wants to give away their hard earned income, they are forcedto bite the bullet.” Korean Democratic Women’s Union members areduty-bound to attend year-end general assembly sessions. Primary groups withinthe entire organ meet in November, while district committees and county-levelfield committees will gather by early December, and each provincial guidancecommittee will meet by mid December.  Building off these regionalconventions, the central committee gathering of the Korean Democratic Women’sUnion will be held thereafter. “If the low level groups fail to complete agiven task, the leader of the local group will receive close questioning andscrutiny from field commission officials,” he pointed out. “If the group leader is unable tocomplete the fundraising tasks by the end of the year, they will be punished.These sorts of coercive relationships exist at every rung of the ladder, soevery piece of the machine has incentives to deliver on its objectives.” Most feel for these women, “because theysee how difficult it is for them,” he explained.  It normally costs just5,000- 6,000 KPW (0.58-0.70 USD) to be excused from a mobilization, but thesewomen are “forced to pay more than all these mobilization excuse fees puttogether at one time.” “Burdened by these fees in the midst ofkimchi making season, some of the Union Members are asking around for smallloans so that they can pay the fees and also buy the necessary ingredients tomake enough kimchi before the winter sets in,” the source concluded.*The content of this article was broadcast to the North Korean people via Unification Media Group.

Alberta to again lead nation in growth: TD

Economy lost 68,000 jobs in May The TD Bank says persistently strong oil prices are giving the economies of resource-rich prairie provinces a turbo-boost. The bank says in a new provincial economic outlook that Alberta will grow a robust 3.6% this year, well above the 2.2 average for the country. That’s also a full point more than previously expected in the bank’s January forecast. TD says the impetus is a changed outlook for oil prices, with global crude now anticipated to average about US$100 a barrel for the rest of the year. Saskatchewan will also benefit, but to a lesser extent, and will see its economy expand by 3.1%. According to the bank, Alberta and Saskatchewan will be the only provinces in Canada to enjoy growth rates above three per cent in 2012, a feat they will repeat in 2013. TD upgraded its growth forecast for the nation last month. Monday’s report is a provincial breakdown of the previous national outlook. The details show the East-West divide in the economy not only continuing, but widening. Alberta’s lead is 1.1 percentage points above any non-oil resource province, with Prince Edward Island coming in a distant third on the provincial ratings on growth of 2.5% this year. The most populous provinces, Quebec and Ontario, will continue to struggle with growth rates of 2.0 and 2.1% respectively in 2012, and only slightly better in 2013. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will trail the nation in growth this year at 1.7 and 1.8% respectively. Forecast growth rates for other provinces in 2012 were: British Columbia (2.1), Manitoba (2.1), and Newfoundland (2.4).

Cabramatta Loop closer to construction

first_imgCabramatta Loop closer to construction The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has released the design and construct tender for the Cabramatta Loop Project, which will play an important role in meeting Sydney’s future freight demand.Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the project involved constructing and operating a passing loop on the eastern side of the Southern Sydney Freight Line between Cabramatta and Warwick Farm stations to allow trains to pass at a key juncture.“This transformative project will help increase the share of freight moved by rail in New South Wales and create up to 220 jobs during the construction phase which is scheduled to start in 2021,” Mr McCormack said.“Downer EDI, Fulton Hogan and John Holland Group have been shortlisted for the design and construction work for the Cabramatta Loop, which will help accommodate the expected increase in containers moved by rail to and from Port Botany on the Southern Sydney Freight Line.“The Morrison-McCormack Government has committed $400 million to the Port Botany Rail Line Duplication and Cabramatta Loop projects, which will increase rail freight productivity through Port Botany.“The Cabramatta Loop will aid the national supply chain by building upon the benefits of other capacity improvements across the ARTC network and by enabling freight trains up to 1,300 metres long – travelling in either direction – to pass each other.“The increase in rail capacity will create greater reliability for freight customers and improve operational efficiency and flexibility.“Rail is playing a critical role in our $110 billion infrastructure plan, which is laying the foundations for economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.”Minister for Finance Simon Birmingham said the delivery of the Cabramatta Loop was important to meeting the freight demands of Sydney as well as linking our regions with one of Australia’s largest ports.“Australia’s freight flows are set to experience significant growth over the coming decades and demand for further capacity on the Southern Sydney Freight Line is expected by the mid-2020s,” Minister Birmingham said.“This is part of the Australian Government’s investment to increase the safety and efficiency of the national freight network to ensure Australian businesses remain globally competitive and deliver their products to markets in Australia and overseas with more ease.” /Public Release.
