Overview

British Prime Minister Theresa May will set out more on her plans for Britain’s departure from the European Union in a long-awaited speech on Tuesday.

Thousands of Lloyds Banking Group Plc customers were struggling to access their online accounts for a second day after the British bank said on Thursday it was working to identify an intermittent glitch in its system.

British staffing company Hays Plc reported a rise in quarterly net fees as growth in continental Europe and Asia offset tough conditions in Britain where firms remained cautious as the country prepares to exit the European Union.

Scottish National Party’s Fiona Hyslop said on Thursday that her party had no plans to introduce a legal provision in Scotland that would force newspapers to accept state-backed regulation as a “threat to press freedom”, in a sharp change of stance that is likely to increase pressure on May’s UK government on the issue.
