The number of EU citizens leaving Britain has reached its highest level in a decade, while fewer are arriving. It is unclear if concerns surrounding Brexit are a major factor in people's decision to leave.
UK Brexit Minister David Davis' speech in Vienna sought to reassure EU leaders. Brexit would not lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom and Britain would not be plunged into a Mad Max-style world, he said.
Theresa May and her ministers are aiming to heal Tory divisions with a series of speeches. Meanwhile, George Soros was hounded on Brexit in the UK press and the EU's chief negotiator has issued a stern warning to London.
EU budget chief Günther Oettinger says he wants Berlin to pay at least 3 billion euros more to cope with new tasks after Britain leaves the bloc. But he said that meant just 10 cents a day more for everyone in Germany.
