Our Prime Minister, Theresa May made three clear promises right at the start of the Brexit negotiations. A deal on citizens’ rights. No hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. A fair financial settlement.
And today we delivered on all three. So now we can begin trade negotiations and make a success of Brexit.
We promised to guarantee the rights of EU citizens living in the UK – as long as the EU guarantees the rights of British people living in the EU. So our small businesses have the workers they need, and our citizens abroad have the protection they need. DELIVERED.
We promised there would be no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – while keeping the Common Travel Area. So we can maintain the peace while creating more jobs and a stronger economy for Northern Ireland. DELIVERED.
We promised that we would honour our financial commitments to the EU – but no more. So from 29 March 2019, when we formally leave the EU, we can spend that money on our NHS and public services. DELIVERED.
