Brexit LIVE: Chaos as UK to be blocked from MAJOR EU trade deals in event of no-deal

THE EU’s trade agreements with Japan, Algeria and Turkey will not automatically still apply to the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the Government has confirmed.

The revelation was made in the latest document released by Whitehall as the UK gears up its preparations to leave the Brussels trade bloc without a deal. The Government said it was “in the process of transitioning existing trade agreements of which the UK participates as a member of the European Union”. It is hoped a total of around 40 existing trade deals will roll over after March 29 in the event the Brexit deadlock is unable to be broken.
