UK's Johnson to visit European capitals seeking Brexit breakthrough

Johnson is expected to push for fresh talks over the terms of Brexit or warn that the European Union faces Britain crashing out of the bloc on October 31. McDonnell, the opposition Labour Party's, second most powerful man, said that the looming crisis demanded parliament's summer break must be brought to an early end.

The developments came a day after a leaked report showed that the British government is preparing for widespread shortages of food, fuel and medicines in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

"Details of other changes immediately on October 31 for a new immigration system are now being developed", the spokeswoman said.

Mr Johnson will meet French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel later this week.

He said Johnson must not be allowed to use parliamentary procedure to block discussion of the country's future, referring to concerns that Johnson could suspend the legislature until after October 31 or delay a national election even if his government fell before that date.

"We will be ready to come out on October 31 - deal or no deal", Johnson told reporters in Truro, southwest England.

Meanwhile, more than 100 British lawmakers have signed a letter asking Johnson to recall Parliament because of concerns about his Brexit strategy.

The newspaper published what it said were three pages worth of "planning assumptions" detailing what the British government expects in the case of a sudden, "no-deal" exit from the EU.

"MPs should be in Parliament holding an increasingly reckless prime minister to account", Lucas told the BBC.

"We will do everything necessary to stop a disastrous no-deal, for which this government has no mandate", Corbyn said in a speech in Corby in central England.

A government source said Michael Gove, the minister in charge of co-ordinating no deal preparations, would give a statement to parliament as soon as it returns, updating them on the latest progress.

Johnson and Corbyn are fighting for support in an increasingly fractious country where Brexit cuts across traditional party lines.

Macron invited Johnson for talks Thursday on Britain's pending departure from the European Union "in respect of the European principles agreed among the 27" remaining EU countries, according to Macron's office.

The U.S. Trade Representative's Office last October notified Congress that it intends to negotiate a trade agreement with Britain under the Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015.
