We will shape EU’s future: David Davis makes rallying speech as Brexit negotiations begin

19 Jun

Rejecting talk of hard and soft Brexit as terms for cheese, he said the Government wanted an “open Brexit” that saw the UK even more engaged with the world. 

It would still attract talented people while at the same time taking back control of its borders. 

The Foreign Secretary said the election made clear voters wanted a Brexit that was “generous, works for citizens, whether in the UK or the EU, and above all make sure you get on with it and get the job done. 

“I believe people want an open Brexit, and a vision for Britain as a great global trading nation – and that’s what we are going to deliver.”

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, who today starts talks in Washington on boosting AngloAmerican trade, said his department was already working to build the platform for thriving new trade links.
