UK publishes EU negotiation plans

The UK government has published further details of its Brexit negotiating strategy with regards to goods being traded on the day the UK leaves and on information sharing.

The Brexit department intends to keep pressure on the EU ahead of the next round of talks, hoping that the move will assist in progressing the talks on from their initial phase.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said: "These papers will help give businesses and consumers certainty and confidence in the UK’s status as an economic powerhouse after we have left the EU. They also show that as we enter the third round of negotiations, it is clear that our separation from the EU and future relationship are inextricably linked. We have already begun to set out what we would like to see from a future relationship on issues such as customs and are ready to begin a formal dialogue on this and other issues."
