BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union has received 27 proposals from EU members to host the two agencies that will have to be relocated when Britain completes its exit from the bloc, the European Union Council said on Tuesday.

The council added it had received 19 proposals for hosting the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and eight candidate cities for the European Banking Authority (EBA).

The decision on which city will get to host these agencies will be made in November, the Council added.
