    Nicola Sturgeon calls for extension of Brexit transition period

    Nicola Sturgeon said a longer transition period was ‘vital to avoid another cliff-edge scenario’. Nicola Sturgeon has called for an extension of the proposed 21-month Brexit transition period to give the UK government more time to negotiate a compromise with opposition parties, in order to deliver a “commonsense” future relationship with the EU. “If the last two years have shown us anything, it is surely that more time will inevitably be needed to agree the future relationship, and so being able to extend the transition period will be vital to avoid another cliff-edge scenario,” Scotland’s first minister said.

    Public transport campaigners have warned of a “crisis” in bus travel as new analysis shows passenger journeys are at a 12-year low. The Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) said rising fares and cuts to services meant fewer people were able to make use of buses. The latest figures from the Department for Transport show 1.2 billion local bus journeys were made across Britain between April and June – a 10 per cent decrease since the peak of 1.33 billion between July and September 2008.

    Germans to pay slightly lower levy for renewable energy in 2019

    Germany will cut a green energy surcharge on consumers' electricity bills by 5.7 percent next year, but savings for households will be limited as other fees are expected to rise. German power network operators (TSOs) said on Monday that revenues collected to support green electricity are high and wholesale market prices have risen, allowing renewables producers to rely less on subsidies. Next year the surcharge under the renewable energy act (EEG) - a fee that accounts for over a fifth of energy bills - will fall to 6.405 euro cents (7.4 US cents) per kilowatt hour (kWh), from 6.792 cents this year, TSOs said in a statement.
