UK Not Looking For "Race To The Bottom" After Brexit, Davis Says

UK Not Looking For

The cabinet will meet at Chequers tomorrow to finalise Britain's proposals but The Times understands that key elements of the plan are already being privately briefed to European Union member states.

He said that "everything we are doing is aiming towards ensuring we meet every aspect" of the agreement. "Neither side should put up unnecessary barriers during this process", Davis will add. That's exactly the sort of arrangement we want to see maintained even after we leave the European Union'.

'Such mutual recognition will naturally require close, even-handed co-operation between these authorities and a common set of principles to guide them, ' he said.

Mr Davis said this can be achieved if both sides recognise each other's standards and regulations, promising the United Kingdom will "continue our track record of meeting high standards" once outside the EU.

The Brexit boss promised that our laws would continue to protect Brits against scrupulous bosses and would promote fairness and respect in worldwide trade. "And because of that, I am certain that we can get this right".

"The red lines of the United Kingdom for the future relationship with the EU (leaving the internal market and customs union) mean that the trade relationship can not go much further than a trade agreement like the one the EU has concluded with Canada".

Jeremy Corbyn's strategic ambiguity on Brexit is starting to give way.

"This Government opposes erecting barriers to trade where none yet exists, or disrupting the commercial relationships that exist between this country and our continental partners", he said.

The speech provides "assurances that the government wants to maintain and improve standards that deliver for consumers, whilst not inflicting any additional administrative burden on business", said Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the British Retail Consortium.

"We want to stay friends and allies, we want you to succeed as we want to succeed ourselves", he told business leaders today as part of a major charm offensive on the continent. We want to maintain your access to markets across Europe, and beyond.

"We are a nation of innovators".

Liam Fox will hail the UK's manufacturing sector later today too, saying the Government is already working hard and "laying the groundwork" for new trading relationships across the world after we leave.

Their words have been well received by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

Speaking out during a keynote speech in Vienna, Mr Davis is expected to say the United Kingdom wants to maintain "close, even-handed co-operation" with European Union regulatory authorities even after it has withdrawn. "And flexibility will be required from both sets of negotiators to seek solutions that will preserve prosperity on both sides of the Channel".

By confirming he'll campaign for a customs union, Corbyn also drew a clear line between Labour and the Conservative government on Brexit.

The European Commission document comes amid ongoing negotiations on future relations between the EU and the UK.
