EU exit would be ‘difficult and lengthy’, peers warn


Leaving the EU would mean “difficult and lengthy negotiations” that could take years to complete, peers say.The Lords EU Committee said determining the rights of two million UK nationals living in the EU would be a “complex and daunting” part of exit talks.
While they do not recommend a vote either way, peers say trade deals between the EU and non-EU states take between four and nine years on average.
Leave campaigners argue a UK-EU Treaty should be wrapped up in two years.
