Britain’s ambassador to the European Union, who sometimes clashed with London over its approach to Europe, abruptly resigned less than three months before Prime Minister Theresa May is due to trigger formal Brexit negotiations.

Britain’s exit from the European Union would adversely affect UK agriculture with the loss of income from the EU in the form of Common Agricultural Policy payments, uncertainty over the scope of new trade deals, and possibly stiffer trading competition from larger economies with lower animal welfare and food safety standards, according to a report published on Wednesday by the Environmental Audit Committee.
