12 Negotiating Objectives for Brexit

How strongly do you support each of these negotiating objectives?

1. Certainty: the Government will put the final deal with the EU to a vote in both Houses of Parliament.

2. Control of our own laws: we will bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in Britain.

3. Strengthen the Union: We will ensure that the right powers are returned to Westminster and the right powers are passed to the devolved administrations. We will make sure that no new barriers to living and doing business within our Union are created.

4. Maintain the Common Travel Area with Ireland, while protecting the integrity of the United Kingdom’s immigration system.

5. Control of immigration: We will continue to attract the brightest and the best to work or study in Britain but there must be control of the number of people who to come to Britain from Europe.

6. Rights for EU nationals in Britain, and British nationals in the EU: we want to guarantee these rights as early as we can.

7. Protect workers’ rights: we will ensure that workers’ rights are fully protected and maintained.

8. Free trade with European markets: we will pursue a bold and ambitious Free Trade Agreement with the European Union that must be outside the EU’s Single Market. We will not have to comply to EU law or contribute huge sums of money.

9. New trade agreements with other countries: to become a global trading nation we will have to leave the full Customs Union and come to a customs agreement with the EU in order to strike trade deals with other countries.

10. The best place for science and innovation: we will continue to collaborate with our European partners on major science, research and technology initiatives.

11. Co-operation in the fight against crime and terrorism: we want our future relationship with the EU to include practical arrangements on matters of law enforcement and intelligence.

12. A smooth, orderly Brexit: to reach an agreement about our future partnership by the end of the two year Article 50 process, and then phase its implementation. We want to avoid a disruptive cliff-edge.
