LONDON | The Latest: French government holds special Brexit meeting
LONDON—Jan 17, 2019—The Latest on Brexit (all times local):
France’s prime minister is a holding a special government meeting on how his country will cope with a possible “no-deal” Brexit.
The French parliament adopted a law Wednesday allowing emergency measures after March 30 in the event Britain leaves without a deal.
Such measures could aim to reduce problems in cross-border trade and transport, notably through the Eurotunnel beneath the English Channel, and allow British workers and retirees based in France temporary permission to stay until a longer-term deal is worked out.
