Responding to comments by Ms Anderson criticising the United Kingdom government and the "disastrous impact" the need for worldwide driving permits would have on Northern Ireland, Mr Wilson said the "precautionary measure" being taken regarding driving licences post-March 2019 was a "perfectly sensible" step to take.

However, Edmund King, President of the AA, said: "In some circumstances, such as driving into France and then Spain, drivers will need two separate IDPs as Spain, Eire, Malta and Cyprus have not ratified the 1968 Vienna Convention".

They reveal that United Kingdom citizens with passports valid for less than six months would likely be refused entry to European Union countries as they would be treated as third-country nationals in line with visitors from the US, Canada and Australia.

For the public, Thursday's notices covered more mundane issues; the government said British drivers might need to obtain an global driving permit to drive in the EU.

Renewing a passport costs a reasonably hefty £72.50 (€80), while the cost of an worldwide drivers' permit is a mere £5.50 (€6).

Ministers admitted the re-designed documents in the original colour scheme, will not start being issued until late next year.

Regarding the EU Earth observation programme Copernicus, the papers said that in a no-deal scenario, the United Kingdom will no longer be able to participate in it or have a role in how it is run. However, it said that the government would legislate to ensure that the requirement on mobile operators to impose financial limits on mobile data usage whilst overseas is retained in United Kingdom law.

The EU directive which capped the prices mobile phone operators could charge each other will no longer apply to the United Kingdom after Brexit.

Less clear, however, is what will happen on the free flow of data. The government played down fears that holidaymakers would be hit with swingeing roaming charges for using mobile phone in the EU.

The European Union wants a deal over Britain's exit from the bloc to guarantee there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

But a technical paper released by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) went further, warning the United Kingdom would "no longer play any part in the development of Galileo" or the related European Geostationary Navigation Overlay (EGNO) system.
