government response details
The British people voted to leave the EU and the Government is clear that we will deliver on their decision. As the Prime Minister set out in her Mansion House speech, the UK is seeking the broadest and deepest possible agreement with the EU. The Government's vision is of a UK that is a champion of free trade based on high standards - a Britain which forges a bold and comprehensive economic partnership with its neighbours in the EU, and reaches out beyond to strike trade agreements with nations across the globe.Significant progress has been made in the negotiations as set out in the Joint Report on progress which the UK and EU published in December. The UK and EU have also agreed the terms of a time-limited implementation period. This will give businesses and citizens the time they need to put in place the new arrangements required, as the terms of our future partnership become clearer.The implementation period will also establish a bridge to the new UK's partnership with the EU. After 29 March 2019, the UK will be able to step out into the world and forge its own way by negotiating, ratifying and signing trade deals across the globe.Good progress has been made on the wider Withdrawal Agreement. The sections on Citizens' Rights and the Financial Settlement have been locked down. On Northern Ireland, where there is more to do before the deal can be finalised, both the EU and the UK have reaffirmed their commitment to the December Joint Report. Both sides are committed to reaching agreement on the entire Withdrawal Agreement by October.The EU has now adopted guidelines for the next phase of negotiations on future EU-UK relations. The UK Government will continue to approach the negotiations with energy and ambition and will work with the EU to develop a strong future economic and security partnership.We will continue to work together to deliver the best possible outcome for all our citizens.Department for Exiting the European Union
