‘We’ll put Juncker back in his box!’ David Davis warns EU as he talks tough on Brexit

19 May

Mr Davis took a swipe at former colleague George Osborne for suggesting that no senior ministers backed the pledge to reduce annual migration below 100,000. 

“He is absolutely wrong,” he said. 

“But we have not put a timetable on this because it will depend on the economy. 

“We will bring immigration down in a way that is responsible, has got the clear aim of a sustainable level, which is the tens of thousands.” 

In an optimistic look ahead to a prosperous future outside the EU, Mr Davis insisted that the economic boost from freedom to trade globally would far outstrip the dividend from ending Britain’s contribution to Brussels coffers. 

“It’s about preserving as much as we can of our current markets within Europe but also finding new markets in the rest of the world,” he said.
