In a statement, ministers said: “For supermarkets and their suppliers, as part of the operational plan the UK committed to at the UK-EU Joint Committee on 24 February, the current Scheme for Temporary Agri-food Movements to Northern Ireland will continue until 1 October. Brexit: EU raises ‘strong concerns’ about grace period extension Poppy Wood whatsapp (Getty Images) The EU will raise “strong concerns” about Britain’s extension of a grace period for checks on agricultural and food products heading to Northern Ireland, the vice president of the European Commission has said. However, the move was met with criticism from figures from across the political spectrum. Raoul Ruparel, Theresa May’s former Brexit adviser, tweeted that it was “hard to see how this is allowed under the Protocol. “Certification requirements will then be introduced in phases alongside the roll out of the Digital Assistance Scheme.” “I suspect [the] UK gamble is that because it’s temporary and part of [a] step to full requirements, the scope for EU objection/action is limited,” he said. Ireland’s deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill also slammed the move. “The EU and the British government need to work together and this appears to be another unilateral attempt to override what has been agreed,” she said.

Supermarkets in Northern Ireland have struggled with supply issues since the Brexit transition period ended on 1 January, however the problem is expected to worsen when the existing grace period ends. “I’ll be raising our strong concerns on the respect of the [Northern Ireland] Protocol, following today’s announcements,” Sefcovic said on Twitter. Share Ministers said they would extend the grace period on Irish Sea border checks for UK supermarkets and suppliers to adapt to new trade barriers. Maros Sefcovic said he will speak to David Frost, the Prime Minister’s Europe Adviser, on the implementation of EU-UK agreements tonight. “What everyone should be focused on is achieving agreement to find solutions to the issues that are outstanding, but it’s very clear the protocol must be made to work.” He added that the government would underscore that with the operational “easings” to protect food supplies and other areas, pending further discussions with the EU. It is understood the government has described the move as an “operational easement” rather than a formal extension of the grace period.

Home Columnists Fr Paddy: November… A time to remember Columnists Fr Paddy: November… A time to remember Facebook It’s the time of year when the shadows lengthen, evenings fall quickly and our busy lives slow down, all of which is this is reflected in the world of nature.Leaves that have died fall to make room for the newness of colour and hope contained in the womb of spring. In pre-Christian times people grappled with the mystery of life and death.The burial tomb at Newgrange Co. Meath is such an example. It dates back to 3150BC and was not discovered until 1962 by a local farmer when its real significance and purpose came to light.It is a monument, magnificent and brilliant, that encapsulates our innate struggle seeking meaning and hope of a life after death. This monument aligns itself to the greater cosmos.On December 21 (Winter Solstice) light penetrates right into the burial chamber. Wisdom suggested that the sun god would visit the darkness of death and transform it to new life.Our Christian tradition also promises that, “people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.”November is the time of the year when we too remember all our loved ones who have gone before us.The leaves have fallen and trees stand bare. The land now harvested rests and lies fallow, winter points us to mortality and death, one day with great certainty we too all of us will die.Many of us during this month will visit our family graves and remember our loved ones.Death is difficult and indeed painful. Death strips us of the familiar and leaves us often naked and vulnerable, with our bereavement and painful losses.The death of a loved one often leaves us asking many questions struggling in finding answers as we wrestle in the coping and continuing of our day to day without a husband or wife, sibling or friend.The great Christian writer C.S. Lewis describing his experience of loss simply, “The tears and loss that I now feel is the love we once shared.”Perhaps the two most powerful lines in the entire Gospel describe the human emotion felt by Jesus when his friend Lazarus died, “Jesus wept”.Jesus knew the pain and hurt that comes to visit when someone we love dies. In fact in order for God to fully embrace the human condition, he also through his Son had to embrace death itself.The humiliating and brutal manner of Christ’s death united God with all experiences of suffering and persecution. The final words that came from our dying God was a prayer of welcome and wonderful invitation “Today you will be with me in paradise”.We know from our experience of the seasons that the leaves will blossom again, that spring will come.Christ’s death was an ultimate demonstration of love by his Father.As he was awoken to new life and resurrection, so too are all of us, who believe in him.As we remember our loved ones who have died and pray for them, we do so with great hope in our hearts.St. Paul tells us that “Our true home is in heaven.”May all our loved ones enjoy the eternal promise of life and peace in the happiness and joy of God’s presence. Jesus tells us “I am going ahead of you to prepare a place for you. So that where I am, you too shall be.”Remembering our loved ones who have gone before us is a noble and worthy endeavour. May all who we have loved and lost, rest in peace.The following poem reflects on the vulnerability of griedf.For Grief – Poemby John O’ DonohueWhen you lose someone you love,Your life becomes strange,The ground beneath you becomes fragile,Your thoughts make your eyes unsure;And some dead echo drags your voice downWhere words have no confidenceYour heart has grown heavy with loss;And though this loss has wounded others too,No one knows what has been taken from youWhen the silence of absence deepens.Flickers of guilt kindle regretFor all that was left unsaid or undone.There are days when you wake up happy;Again inside the fullness of life,Until the moment breaksAnd you are thrown backOnto the black tide of loss.Days when you have your heart back,You are able to function wellUntil in the middle of work or encounter,Suddenly with no warning,You are ambushed by grief.It becomes hard to trust yourself.All you can depend on now is thatSorrow will remain faithful to itself.More than you, it knows its wayAnd will find the right timeTo pull and pull the rope of griefUntil that coiled hill of tearsHas reduced to its last drop.Gradually, you will learn acquaintanceWith the invisible form of your departed;And when the work of grief is done,The wound of loss will healAnd you will have learnedTo wean your eyesFrom that gap in the airAnd be able to enter the hearthIn your soul where your loved oneHas awaited your returnAll the time.

It also found that only 30% know that the main advantage of index funds over actively managed funds is that they typically charge lower fees and expenses.Investor knowledge was particularly weak when it comes to understanding industry fees.The survey found that nearly one-third don’t know how much they pay in investment fees and expenses, or believe that they don’t pay anything at all.It also found that investors are highly confident in their own portfolios, with 29% saying they expect their portfolio to outperform the market, compared with just 4% who expect it to underperform.Regarding cryptocurrencies, most investors (85%) said that they are aware of crypto, and 12% said that they have already invested in crypto.The study also found that investors increasingly prefer to receive investment disclosure via email (33%), while a preference for mailed disclosure dropped from 49% in 2015 to 36%.“These research findings underscore the need for researchers, policy-makers, advocates and industry stakeholders to continue to develop innovative investor tools and resources to better educate investors and to help protect them from fraud,” said Gerri Walsh, president of the FINRA Foundation and FINRA’s senior vice president for investor education. 123RF/ismagilov How should banks allocate capital for crypto?

I knew these men had it in them and then they delivered way above expectations by smashing the old record. I am still walking on cloud nine.”She said although the women did not finish their race we still need to respect them and love them because they are Jamaica’s finest.Chief Representative of Jamaica National Building Society’s (JNBS) Toronto office, Mrs. Alison Martin, invited Jamaicans to watch the two relay races on large-screen television sets outside JN’s offices.
